Universal Extractor Download Free for Windows 10, 7, 8

Universal Extractor is a program do to exactly what it says: extract files from any type of archive, whether it’s a simple zip file, an installation program (like Wise or NSIS), or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package.

This application is not intended to be a general-purpose archiving program. It will never replace WinRAR, 7-Zip, etc. What it will do is allow you to extract files from virtually any type of archive, regardless of source, compression method, etc. The original motivation behind this project was to create an easy, convenient way to extract files from installation packages, such as Inno Setup or Windows Installer packages, without pulling up a command line every time.

Universal Extractor

We send and receive different files and one of the best way to do it is to create archives to reduce the file size and to send just one file instead of multiple ones. This software is designed to open or extract files from archives created with popular programs like WinRAR, WinZip, 7 ZIP and others.

The program cannot create new archives, but will open almost any extension. It is designed to be simple and direct, without plugins or command-line options..

It offers different options as context menu in the right click menu. You can select the folder destination, as well to delete the duplicate files. Besides from decompressing common archives, the tool can open and get the files from self-executable EXE files.

Universal Extractor is licensed as freeware for PC or laptop with Windows 32 bit and 64 bit operating system. It is in compression category and is available to all software users as a free download.
