Windows 7: WinRAR not in OPEN WITH list

WinRAR not in OPEN WITH list

Hello,

I never make threads in forums like these (or yahoo question etc..) but this is bugging me for quite a big while.

Why isn`t WinRAR in the OPEN WITH list? I have a file that I know is opened with WinRAR but I cant choose it since it`s not in the list.

Any other way I can open a file with WinRAR or adding it to the Open With list?

Best Wishes, Morrey

Welcome Morrey.
Is Winrar installed on your system?
Open Winrar, Options, Integration and check items as pointed to below.

EDIT: Also try going to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Default Programs Choose Winrar and then .rar files.
