  1. Rar files opening in Notepad


    I play games such as Sims 4 and I download custom content. A good portion of the stuff I download are RAR files. I accidentally clicked "Always open with notepad" and I can no longer get it to be just a normal file. I would like to know how to make it not open as a notepad file/in notepad. Please help!

    :)

    .RAR Files only download and open in notepad.

    The file downloads correctly, but since you assigned .rar to Notepad, it doesn't respond like it normally should. But no worries.

    Right-click on a .rar and select Open with...

    Choose a program that can open the .rar format and make it the default for all .rar archives. Ta da!

  3. Corrupted file RAR

    If the archive has been created using WinRAR, why don't you try WinRAR itself? It has a built-in repair feature for repairing corrupted archive (ZIP as well as RAR). Follow the steps given below:
    • Open WinRAR application in your system.
    • Now click on File tab > Open or simply press Ctrl+O.
    • A small window "Find Archive" will pop up. Locate the corrupt RAR archive from your system directory and select it.
    • Now click Open button.
    • Click Tools tab > Repair archive or simply press Alt+R.
    • Again a small window "Repairing File name.rar" will pop up.
    • Now click Browse to select a location to save the repaired archive.
    • Check the box "Treat the corrupt archive as RAR" and click OK.
    • WinRAR will start repairing of corrupt RAR archive. Once it gets completed click Close.
    I hope the above steps will help you repair the corrupted RAR archive.

    Thanks.

  4. Rar files opening in Notepad

    .RAR Files only download and open in notepad.

    I accidentally set .rar files to only open in notepad on my laptop. Is there a way I can program my settings so they download correctly as compressed folders?
