Once again, I am writing this post upon request from one of readers. Sometimes WinRAR entry in the right-click context menu disappears even if you have installed WinRAR without any problem. This is really annoying as you need to open WinRAR program from Start menu entry to extract any RAR file.
Fix: WinRAR entry missing from context menu
If you have successfully installed WinRAR, you should see the entry in the right click context menu for zipped files. Suppose, you can’t see the entry means you need to follow the below procedure to see the entry. The solution is simple.
Step 1: Open WinRAR from the start menu entry. If you can’t see WinRAR entry in the start menu, go to C:\Program Files\WinRAR (where “C” is your OS drive), and double-click WinRAR.exe to open WinRAR.
Step 2: Switch to “Options” tab and then, open “Settings” option.
Step 3: Once again switch to “Integration” tab in the new window.
Step 4: Check the option named “Integrate WinRAR into shell” and click ok.
Now you should see the WinRAR entry.
