I changed my RAR files to open with command prompt. I cant change winrar as my default program back now. this is very annoying. help.

I was setting command prompt as my default because i though it would allow me to extract rar files with a password, but it didn't. Now every time i want to open/extract a rar file i have to right click, open with and choose winrar. I would like help please.

I think that the best thing to do is to uninstall winrar and re-install it. This way you will be able to easily set it as a default program as it will be configuring. Consult a computer technician for more details.

You need to post what operating system you are using if you want a semi intelligent answer.

You can use Peazip. That's what I use. It's easy. http://www.filehippo.com/download_peazip/

Winrar is the program primarily associated with .rar files. It is similar to winzip.

Right click---->Open with------->choose default program. Or Start menu----> Default programs, then you pick winrar and have it be default for every thing it opens. Other than that, I don't know.
