I'm unpacking 100's of files and the automaticing opening of each unpacked file is seriously slowing me down. :-\ Is there a setting to let it just download and not open?

Don't choose open with winrar, choose save file to disc, make a folder on your disc for example ''Library'' and extract later.
Is that what you mean ? Im on Windows ?

If I got it, once unpacked, the files open (whatever they are, audio or folders..), slowing down the unpacking process.
I can't help cause I don't use WinRar and I'm on Mac, but I'm 100% sure there is a setting for this.

Btw, I would try another program like WinZip or 7Zip for Win, and maybe they will do the work just fine cause they have the right settings for you straight away.
