Fast technology May 24 news, see.7z.rar. tar and other formats, I am afraid familiar with the computer friends are not unfamiliar, this is the significance of the installation of three party decompression software, after all, in addition to zip, Windows native support for compressed files is too little.

But a feature you've been waiting for for decades is coming, with Microsoft revealing that Windows 11 will soon have native support for formats like.rar.


Windows chief Panos Panay confirmed,The Windodws project team has added compression algorithms (gzip/bzip2/xz/lzip, etc.) that support tar/7-zip/rar/gz and other open source compression libraries like Libarchive.

It is known thatThe feature is integrated in the Moment3 Experience Pack update, which began to be distributed to Win11 users on May 24.

Of course, although this will to some extent replace the popular compression software WinRAR, 7zip and other features, but from the current Windows support for zip, certainly not as good as specialized compression software.

The rar compression algorithm was invented 30 years ago by Eugene Roshal, a Russian engineer who also wrote WinRAR.
