Winrar question plz

I am forced to be using my laptop windows 7 pc now and am wondering what needs to be changed differently in my winrar.

on my windows xp I was able to right click on a zip file and have the choice of Extract to... I could also select numerous zips and they would all extract to the folder I chose. now on my laptop with windows 7 I do not have these choices. when I right click I have to open and when I choose mulitiple zips they all come up seperately.

is there anyway to set up my windows 7 to do as the xp did?
thank you

Have you done a fresh install of Winrar?

I have not used it in maybe 4 years. 7-Zip is an excellent alternative that works fine on Windows 7 for me.

when you install winrar there is an option to have extract to etc in the context menu, im not sure of the exact wording but i know the option is definitely there when you install, try reinstalling it and look for the option.
