Finally windows explorer under or in windows 7-64.  With Filebox eXtender and some other utilities as Ewemoa, Miguel, Miles, and a large list from Donation coder .
Sometimes I use FreeCommander.

Are you thinking in .........

I was going to suggest any file manager that will give you a "flat" view - i.e. in one pane it will show you all files in a folder *and* all it's sub-folders.
Then sort by filetype.
In Directory Opus you can then filter the files - probably in other managers too.

But why dont you simply use some quality search programme? e.g. XYplorer does both - possible that the last free version will do flat view as well but I dont know (I think in XY it's called something else)

best of luck ;-)

I have remember now : Directory Opus.
I remember have a trial.
The program I ask is not for me. Is for a linux lover that only uses folders for organizing and need decompressed. I have many programs in compressed modes and don't need decompress.

I know my friend. He is thinking in automation. A script able to collect the rar and zip files and extracto to the same folder.

That's the point.

In his own words translated : Programa que recorra un árbol de carpetas descomprimiendo los "zip" y "rar" que se encuentre y deje los archivos descomprimidos en la misma carpeta.....

Program to scan a folder tree decompressing the zip and rar file that are found and decompressed this files in the same folder where they are found.


Note : jiiiiiiii . He is learning english and perhaps in a time he will post directly. I hope so.  :-[
