Are there any programs similar to 7zip or PeaZip that support a "queue" functionality? I have multiple large files to unzip, and I would like to add them all to one single queue and have them synchronously extract.

I find that if I unzip them all at the same time, it takes quite a while longer. Any suggestions?

WinRAR can do this. In the extract window, go to the "Advanced" tab and check "Wait if other WinRAR copies are active".

PowerArchiver can do this. It has a queue function that can be enabled to handle queuing up several operations.

It normally operates serially if you select several archives to extract at once, but the queue also lets you queue up several independent actions from Explorer.
