Universal Extractor


The interface of Universal Extractor is extremely simple and easy to grasp. Once installed and launched the program will present you with a small window, where you can choose the file to be decompressed and where to save the file, once it is extracted. There isn't much else to it, except for the usual “File”, “Edit” and “Help” menus in the upper left corner of the window. “File” will get you out of the program, while “Edit” and “Help” will take you to the preferences window of the software and the web site of Universal Extractor respectively.
