Problem with Winrar

Hello, I need your help.
When I try to extracct the content of a RAR file with drag and drop, all the content of the directory containing the RAR file is moved to the target destination.
Moreover, when I click a file in Winrar it will not open, but is saved in the directory containing the RAR file.
Thanks in advance for your help.
