    on WinRAR (i hate having to use this application btw) all you have to do is click the Extract button on the top menu and then choose where you want it extracted to.

    I'm presuming you have some flavour of Windows here.

    Browse to the file you wish to unzip in your file explorer and double-click. This will open WinRAR, and click on "Extract To". You'll be asked where you wish to unzip the .rar file to. Once you've selected the appropriate folder, click "OK".

    And that's all you need to do :)

    You don't even have to open WinRAR. Just right click on the .rar in explorer and click 'Extract Here' to 'Extract to blah blah/', and it'll either extract the files to that folder (first option) or extract them to a folder with the name name as the rar. It's really simple, and you don't have to look at the horrible application ever.

    Get 7-zip, its a great archiving / unarchiving program. Totally free and can open most formats, as well as make .7z files that have the best compression ratio i have ever seen.
