How to Extract Multiple ZIP files

It has become a trend to download files from the internet in a zip format. Most of the time you have enough  zipped files and it becomes quiet annoying to extract them one by one. I specially remember it when my hard drive  data got erased because of a stupid virus but I’m glad I had all the backup saved. I just had to unzip all the  files to get the system back in action. It took me a week to get it all done but only if I knew there was a way  to unzip these files at the same time, it would have saved me a lot of time.

Extractnow is a free software that allows you to extract mutiple archives at the same time. It supports formats  such as ZIP, RAR, ACE, ISO and IMG. It comes with a very user friendly interface and does a fine job when it  comes to bundling compressed files and extracting their contents with a click of a button.
