"Extract here" right click... no longer working? [Solved?]

Post by greendave8 » Mon Nov 11, 2013 14:08

Since Saturdays update, the above seems to have stopped working on my rig....

Right clicking on any rar files, asks if you want to "extract archive here", but just has a bouncing icon for a minute, and nothing extracted. I have googled this, but so far, no answers. I can of course use Ark to extract the file...

Any clues would be good...

Thanks as always

Thanks Albfeneto....

Something strange has happened.... it is working again, without me doing anything.... Maybe my machine has a poltergeist???

WEIRD....for sure....

But thanks for the command line prompt, I may use it in the future....
