More native support for compressed file extensions comes to Windows 11

The native support for multiple compression formats will make it easier for users to work with different types of compressed files and increase accessibility.

Windows has been compatible with zipped files (.zip) for quite some time, but until then there were some formats that were not natively supported by the software. The recent update added compatibility with 11 versions, allowing users to perform extraction without the need to use third-party programs such as WinRAR.

Here are the new supported options:

  • .Rar
  • .7z
  • .tar
  • .tar.gz
  • .tar.bz2
  • .tar.zst
  • .tar.xz
  • .tgz
  • .tbz2
  • .tzst
  • .txz
