​I am no expert but I think WinRAR is an archive file like zip files and requires either a dedicated opener or a general one such as WinOpener from the Store, or PeaZip on the web (both free).

 

You also might find useful the following free utility OpenWith --- Enhanced which sits in the Context Menu and offers you a variety of apps for opening any file you have clicked on.

Thank you very much clayto and RokTV for your answers.

 

 

Now I tried "7-zip"

 

 

It can extract what WinRAR can not.
