Many types of archives are in common use nowadays, including ZIP, 7-ZIP, RAR, TAR, CAB and ISO. This often forces people to have multiple programs for extracting the various archives, which is not convenient. Thankfully, you can use TC4Shell to handle all these archives.

Features and Functions

The program installer gives you the option to set up file associations during the installation process. Some file types have already been marked by default but you can select and deselect as you want. You may even add file types that have not been listed.

TC4Shell integrates with Windows Explorer, allowing you to open the associated files directly from Windows explorer. You will not need to launch the program and extract archives to a folder before using the extracted files. You will handle the archives just as normal folders via Windows Explorer and use their files. It does not matter whether you are working with self-extracting packages, nested archives or executable files.

Depending on what you do, you may need to frequently handle password-protected archives. The program integrates a simple password manager that lets you set up encryption passwords that you pick from a dialog box as you pack files.

Whether you are extracting or packing files and folders, you will simply use Windows Explorer. To pack files, select them and right-click to open the context menu and choose the appropriate packing option. By default, you can pack to ZIP or 7Z archive, but you can also customize the file type list. In addition, you may choose the option to pack and send via email. You may also configure compression level and save the compression parameters for future use.

You can extend the program's functionality by adding plug-ins and codecs.


TC4Shell is a handy archiver that supports many archive and disk image formats. It integrates with Windows Explorer, allowing you to handle the archives as normal folders and files. The program is compatible with all Windows operating systems from Windows XP.
