Make Dealing With Zip Files Less Of A Pain In OS X [Video How-To]


One of my biggest gripes when dealing with files in OS X is working with zipped directories. OS X’s built in Archive Utility does a poor job of managing compressed files. With some tweaks though, you can make dealing with zipped files less of a pain. In this video, I’ll show you how to do it.

    does the built in archive utility in OSX support unraring? i use unarchiver for that from that appstore but if the native one can unrar i’d rather use that…
