      hi Nihar,
      as for me i don’t really mind extracting one file per time,
      but i wanna ask what is the point of extracting 2 files in the same time?
      winrar gives me the choice to choose multiple archives and select from the right click context menu “extract all”
      or choosing multiple files in the same archive and extract al of them.

      if you mean that extractnow extracts 2 or more files simultaneously in the same time, then this might be an advantage as winrar extract from the same archive [file a time]

      I cannot get files to drag and drop into the Extract Now window. I just installed the latest version on my Windows 7 PC. Why won’t it work like it worked in XP?
