Extract Here (Smart)

By right-clicking on an archive file, you can see 'Extract Here (Smart)' on the menu, and this feature works as follows:

  1. If there is only one file/folder in an archive, it will extract to the target folder.


  2. If all files in an archive is bundled in a single folder, it will extract to the target folder.


  3. In other cases, it will extract to the 'Archive-Name' folder.

Archive files compressed in Unix are often bundled into a single folder.

So, if these files are extracted in the Archive-Name folder, it is inconvenient because two folders of the same name will be created.

In this case, using 'Extract Here (Smart)' is useful.
