How to add an "Extract" or "Extract Here" option to right click menu

I just made the switch to Manjaro GNOME as my daily driver from Linux Mint Cinnamon and pretty much everything is how I like it out of the box except for a few things here and there.

I would like to know how to get an archive extraction option into the right click menu so I don’t have to navigate a separate menu to do this. I’m not sure what controls this, I am using Nemo as file manager and the default archive manager. I assume this is fairly simple but I had trouble finding out how to from searching forums.

Hope you can help me, thanks to anyone who tries!

Hi and Welcome to the forum :wave:

There is a package in the repo: nemo-fileroller that has a description `file archiver extention for Nemo’ that seems add this option. This package is part of the manjaro cinnamon community edition so my guess is that this is what you are looking for.

Edit: it seems to be this but for arch and adds a menu.
