Let's take "birthday party.rar" archive. Right-click on it to open context menu. Select "Extract here" option in the context menu to unrar files from the "birthday party.rar" archive.
Wait a few moments...
That's it. All photos are extracted to the same folder, you can view them as usually.
Sometimes it's more convenient to unrar files into separate folder, especially when there are many files in the archive. It's easier to find and view them later and avoid a mess in the original folder. It's still one click, but instead of "Extract here" select "Extract to..." from the same menu.
The simplest way is to choose default folder which has the same name as the RAR archive. In our example, it's "birthday party". With this option all photos are extracted from rar archive into new separate folder with name "birthday party".
