I want to rename or delete files or folders in a .rar file?

How can I do this?

WinRAR has such a feature. Double click on the RAR file, select the file you like to rename, hit F2 and change the file name. When you hit Enter, the archive will automatically be updated.

On mac/linux command line rar has a switch to rename files in the archive:

rar rn archive.rar filename newfilename

On windows using WinRar you can select a file inside it and press F2 to rename it!
