Open an Archive

Open an Archive

Open an archive in Smartcrypt to work with the files it contains.

The easiest way to open an archive from Windows Explorer is to double-click the archive. This works if the archive type is associated with Smartcrypt.

Any archive that you can open by double-clicking can also be opened in one of these ways:

  • By dragging it onto an open Smartcrypt program window

  • By dragging it onto the Smartcrypt desktop icon

You can also open an archive from Smartcrypt.

To open an archive from Smartcrypt:

1.  Choose Open from the Application Menu or the Quick Access toolbar to display the Open Archive dialog.

2.  In the dialog, navigate to the folder containing the archive you want to open.

3.  Select an archive so that its name appears in the File name field.

If an archive has an archive comment, the comment appears in the tool tip box that displays assorted information when you position the mouse over an archive.

4.  Click Open.

You can open an archive from the numbered list of recently opened archives included in the Application menu.

You can have multiple archives open in Smartcrypt at the same time. To view a different open archive, click the item in the Windows taskbar.

Note: Multiple archive windows are not available if you have Reuse Existing Window checked on the Miscellaneous Options page.
