7-Zip tip – Quickly extract into a particular folder

If you need to extract a file into a particular folder, what do you normally do? Some people may copy the Zip file into the destination folder, and then unzip it. Others may launch their unzip tool of choice’s file manager and use the unzip wizard to point to the destination folder.

7-Zip provides a handy way to do this. All you need to do is right-mouse-drag the Zip file to the destination folder, release the right-mouse button, and go to 7-Zip –> Extract … from within the context menu.
