  • Hallo there Zippers ........ Once day i extract zip files from zip directory. In that directory have a 100++ small size zip files. When i selected all of those files to extract, i just like an idiot watching Peazip windows popping up then closed then popping up again, then closed again, then popping up again, again and again. And wait until it finished. I can not do anything, can not also minimize (peazip) it. Even i open others applications like google chromes or youtube, peazip popping up then closed the extracting windows on the top automaticaly. So i must wait after it finished it all. How to Minimize or Hide PeaZip Popping Up Windows While Extracting ? Please help me to solved this problem. Because i still have a tons of zip files to be extract. Anybodies have the same problem ?

  • I love PeaZip and have it on my computer next to another compression software for those times I need to uncompress something my main compress doesn't handle well.

  • I just might choose this over 7-Zip. Not because I dislike 7-Zip, mind you. But because this software has many many more features than 7-Zip does. I love it. Absolutely love it. Also the additional encryption algorithms supported by PeaZip make it a definite winner for someone who needs to encrypt sensitive data, like myself.
