  1. Thanks for the list, most of it I use. But as for the compression tool and file archives, I know how to open .rar file https://wikiext.com/rar and the rest formats using a universal program. This is much better than downloading 7Zip, Corel WinZip and much more just clogs my PC. This is my opinion, you can also learn more about the universal viewer and use it depending on your needs.
