Fix filename encoding in zip/rar archives
Folder and filenames in Chinese and Japanese are often not in Unicode, because prior to Windows 10 insider build 17035 (November 2017) windows does not support using UTF-8 for OS encoding.
Even afterwards the ability to do so is a beta option.
If your OS is not set to that encoding, you will only see scrambled characters when extracting or viewing the contents of zip/rar archives.
To unscramble those file and folder names you can either change your own Windows locale, which is a big hassle especially if you can't actually read those languages.
Or, you can install WinRAR and use the
E shortcut to change the archive's encoding easily.
