In a blog post, Panos Panay, Chief Product Officer, said, “We have added native support for additional archive formats, including tar, 7-Zip, RAR, gz, and many others using the libarchive open-source project.”

The native support will mean apps like WinRAR won’t be needed, and it is a massive win for Windows 11 as Microsoft continues to roll out features and quality-of-life improvements for the operating system.

The new native support features and other improvements are now available for Windows 11 Insiders and will be rolled out to everyone else later this year.
