If you’re using Windows 8 on o desktop machine or laptop, chances are that you might not need this application, since you can easily use WinRAR, for example. But what will you do on your Windows RT device, for example? Or maybe you simple want to use a dedicated Windows 8 for that. That’s where UnCompress comes to your help.
UnCompress opens, extracts RAR files in Windows 8 and Windows RT
The application is very basic and very easy to use, mainly because there isn’t too much what you could do with this app, besides opening/extracting archives. Inside the app you can do only the following: open single RAR files and open multi part RAR files. Everything happens just like you’re used to: you select the RAR archive and the point to a folder where it should extract. Simple as that.
While the extracting/opening of files happens, you are advised not to switch apps or close UnCompress while it’s doing its thing. This is perhaps the biggest drawback, because we’re used to leaving the extraction process run on the background. Sadly, this isn’t possible with this application in the Modern User interface of Windows 8. Also, there’s an ad banner there, but it’s not that uncomfortable.
UnCompress for Windows 8 is a very basic extracting tool that can prove to be useful while using the Modern UI. UnRAR files easily with it while on the go!
