Microsoft finally listens to its users by adding this missing Windows 11 feature

Windows 11 users will finally be getting a much-requested feature added to the OS — native RAR file extraction support built right into it.

For decades, if you needed to extract files compressed using the historically popular RAR format, you had to rely on the free-to-use WinRAR application (well, more like an infinite 30-day free trial, but still). While it’s an excellent program that’s available in 50 languages and available for multiple operating systems, having native support directly in the OS is extremely convenient and means one less piece of software cluttering your system.
