Extracting Compressed file tar.bz2 in one single click using 7-Zip

Hello,

I would to know that if there’s a way that I can extract a compressed file such as tar.bz2 or tar.gz using 7-Zip in one single click. Usually I have to extract this kind of file in two steps. First I extract the tar.bz2 file into tar file, and then I extract the tar file into the real file or folder. I want these two steps come in just one single click. I’ve done this single click extracting a tar.gz file using WinRAR.

Does this feature available, or this will be a feature request for 7-Zip guys?

Hello Laura

  • Regarding your problem I am afraid that you will be doing the 2 step method till 7- Zip will update their program.
  • For 7- Zip is a super compressor type, it compresses a compressed file, that's why you have to extract 2 times to get your file. That is just how it works it's like getting your gift, first you open the gift wrapper then open the box. Well I do get your point if only 7-Zip can directly tear the box together with the wrapper!
  • 7- Zip hope you'll give an update regarding with these problem.

Hello Laura.

  • Although there have been numerous clamors for that feature to be added to 7-zip, I'm afraid that one-click extraction for tar files is not yet implemented in 7-zip.
  • What I usually do is to double click the file to bring up the 7-zip GUI.  In the GUI you will see the tar file.  Click on the tar file again and you will see the contents.  Just select and drag the contents to the destination folder.  So that's like 5 clicks to extract the contents of a tar.gzip or tar.bzip2 file.
  • There are other free archivers that just might have that single-slick extraction that you want.
