Universal Extractor Software For Windows

Universal Extractor is a program do to exactly what it says: extract files from an archive, whether it’s a simple zip file, an installation program (like Wise or NSIS), or even a Windows Installer (.msi) package. This program is designed and developed to open or extract files from archives created on popular software like WinRar, 7-Zip, WinZip and many other similar. However, the program isn’t able to create a new archive but could open almost any extension.

Powerful decompression tool

Please keep in mind that Universal Extractor 2 is an extended version of the original¬†Universal Extractor, developed by Jared Breland. Therefore, if you are familiar with the latter, you can easily comprehend the former’s abilities without significant effort.


This utility can help you unpack various files from your computer in an efficient, intuitive manner. You just need to specify the target file and choose a destination path for extracting the data contained within it. However, you cannot use it to create archives, as this function is not supported.

Helpful setup assistant

When you first run the application, you are prompted with a wizard-like menu that can help you perform a few configuration steps with minimum difficulty.

Among the adjustable parameters you can find global preferences and context menu entries, but it is also possible to enable additional features from the same assistance component. This program can help you extract both audio and video tracks from standard video files on your computer but requires you to download some required files.

Batch processing capabilities

In case you want to save yourself some time, you can handle multiple documents at the same time by using Universal Extractor 2’s handy batch processing function. You just need to click the Batch button from the main window for each file you plan on adding to the queue.

A small numeric indicator is shown on the Batch button so that you can precisely know how many files the application is going to unpack.

Password list and scan mode

Additionally, this program supports using a password list for secured archives. This function might come in handy if you need to decompress a large number of compressed items that are locked with different passwords.

You can switch between extraction and scan-only modules by clicking the corresponding radio button before executing the process. The scan feature analyzes the source documents and determines their file types without attempting to extract them to your computer.

Integrates into the context menu

Instead of launching the application each time you need to decompress a file on your computer, you can also make use of its context integration module, which can help you perform the desired action quicker.

It is possible to choose between simple and cascading context integration, as well as enabling custom file associations by ticking the corresponding checkbox and typing all the desired formats in the designated field.
