What are the NEW Features in PowerArchiver 2019 Toolbox? 

[Image: TpN7lM6.png]

Modern Win10 – Simplified Ribbon UI

Previous releases of PowerArchiver had advanced interface with great design suitable for most users. The new 2019 version features a new and improved version of the Simplified Ribbon based on Microsoft Office 2019. This will bridge the gap between the Classic toolbar interface that has been around for 25 years, and Ribbon UI that has been in PowerArchiver for last 10 years. 

The new interface features less buttons which allow users to concentrate on important features. 

The new Ribbon UI still features tabs reducing need for classic menus and shows a more organized display of buttons. 
It looks awesome and convenient to use. 

Application navigation bar:

This was added in Windows 10 style (to the left side of PowerArchiver). This renders all  tools and features easily accessible 

Redesigned File menu:

The file menu is located to the left of the home tab in the W10 interface. It has been redesigned to look great, fit in with the Ribbon interface and offer access to various file management functions that PowerArchiver has to offer.

SmartAI – Intelligent decision making:

PowerArchiver 2019 now features an assistant called SmartAI. SmartAI will optimize your compression, save power, change to dark mode when necessary, enable FIPS mode system wide and enable you to work conveniently with touch screens:

SmartAI FIPS modes:

lets administrators enforce FIPS policy across a single computer or whole network. PowerArchiver is the first software that will enable this mode in Windows itself, and provide visual guidance during usage to ensure that users understand if they are not in compliance. During start-up it will show an alert as a warning if FIPS mode is not properly activated. The SmartAI mode has several modes with various warning levels.

SmartAI Windows Skin Detection:

It will detect what Windows 10 theme are you using whether dark or light.  It will let you customize which PowerArchiver skin will be used when you use dark or light Windows 10 theme.

SmartAI PowerSave Mode

SmartAI will detect that your laptop is on battery and when you battery level is under certain %, it will turn on Power Saving mode in PowerArchiver, where PowerArchiver will reduce its power usage to minimum.

SmartAI Touch mode:

SmartAI will detect that you are using a touch compatible computer, and will switch to the Touch mode where the interface will be easier to use and you may activate Gesture options. This mode makes PowerArchiver easier to use on Windows tablets and touch computers.

SmartAI Compression Optimization

It will automatically switch codecs in ZIP, 7zip and PA formats to increase compression or speed based on your compression strength selection. Previously featured as Optimized mode in PowerArchiver for a long time and still a one-of-a kind feature among archivers.

SmartAI Gestures

Comprehensive gesture mode that will let you use predefined and customizable gestures, making your life easier on touchscreens and especially convertible laptops, where sometimes touch is so much easier to use. In true PowerArchiver spirit, it is completely customizable and you can set it up as you want and assign gestures as you please. Gesture will also work with your mouse, when turned on.

Added faster ZIP modes and mp3 support in zipx

Last year we have added the strongest yet fastest ZIP engine on the market. This year we are adding a new engine that is optimized for speed specifically and is used for Fast and Super Fast compression strength. It also uses multiple cores/threads and works on byte level. It can provide 2x faster compression than before! Added packmp3 support for ZIP engine, to make it fully compatible with WinZip.

PowerArchiver Mini is back:

PowerArchiver Mini has returned for 2019! PowerArchiver Mini is our Windows Explorer Preview feature where you can work directly from Windows Explorer Preview window (make sure you turn it on). 

It will show the file list of a selected archive, browse folders, open individual files and extract them with one of the available options. It is super easy to use and very intuitive. 

Explorer tooltips were added to show information about the archive and a summary of the files inside as a tooltip when you hover over an archive in Windows Explorer.

Private Mode option:

New Private Mode feature that clears the PowerArchiver history and cleans the temp folder with US DoD 5220.22-M approved methods.

Full Gesture support:

PowerArchiver has great support for Gestures. You can swipe around the interface intuitively with many PowerArchiver actions available. In true PowerArchiver spirit, it is completely customizable and you can set it up as you want and assign gestures as you please.

Many other improvements:

The 2019 release offers full support for screen readers in Classic toolbar. Filelist is all new and fully supports skinning, large dpi, gesturing and everything you can imagine. If you use 4k screens that are 13″ large, you will love the new PowerArchiver 2019! Open and New archive dialogues are now sporting the Windows 10 look, fully skinned too. Everything simply looks great.

PowerArchiver has more powerful features than 7-Zip, which are useful to me in everyday use: high encryption, mounting ISO images and burning files to any CD / DVD.

Why do I want to win a lifetime license for PowerArchiver 2019 Toolbox?

I have been using PowerArchiver 2015 for opening and encrypting my zip files and love it. ...I would like to win the latest version along with all the toolbox features.  

Some of the many features of the Toolbox version  I like are:
1. 60 compression formats
2. Superfast Zip/ZipX engine
3. Great for file encryption (AES and FIPS)
4. Portable version available 
5. Cloud and email accessible
