Mac newbie might wan to know how to open .rar in Mac OS X. I once look for ways to open .rar file in Mac OS X too. To open .rar file in Mac OS X you need to third party software help. By default Mac OS X doesnt come with tools that open .rar file (or might have that i do not know, correct me if i’m wrong)
To open .rar file in Mac OS X, follow the steps below:-
- Open your browser, and go to UnRaR website and download a copy of UnRarX.

It does not work!!! I downloaded UnRare but when I run the application it gives me a choice: “Extract to:” when I make a choice here, nothing happens. The window is empty.
