RarMonkey Review

Fernando Ortega
All you need to extract Rar compressed archive files for free
A review of RarMonkey by Fernando Ortega

Tired to paying $30 for a program simply to decompress RAR files? Pay no more with RarMonkey, a freeware RAR decompression utility that sports both a unique and fun interface and acceptable speed, especially for a freeware app.

RarMonkey supports integration with the Windows shell (ie. Windows Explorer right-click quick access), drag-and-drop and can perform multiple decompressions quickly and easily.

Since it's free, we highly recommend it.

Installation note: RarMonkey is wrapped with Somoto adware. You should be very careful during installation, ensuring you decline or "Skip" any additional offers while installing. Careless installation may result in your homepage and search engine settings being changed!

RarMonkey features and highlights:
  • Integrates with Windows Shell
  • Can extract several Rar archives at once
  • Can use one password automatically for multiple archive extractions of RAR files that are protected with the same password
  • Saves frequently used passwords in a list for easy re-entry
  • Cool, fun interface

RarMonkey is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from file archivers without restrictions. RarMonkey 1.61 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
