View an archived file

To view an archived file you need to open an CAR archive file first. Then you can select file that you want to view and press F3 key or right-click on the file and select "View" from the context menu. Total commander will call the CAR manager plug-in to extract the selected file to the temporary folder and then you can view it. The "viewing" window can be closed pressing ESC as well.

Warning: because Total Commander closes the viewed file by itself, CAR management plug-in is not able to securely delete the temporary extracted file.
