    How do I decompress all of them to the same folder? On windows and winrar, you just select all of them, right click and choose decompress to aaa.

    How can I do the same with a Mac? I don't mind having to use another software, except that Stuffit, the Unarchiver and Springy are all useless as they don't integrate with the finder context menu nor do they have that option anywhere.

    StuffIt Expander works perfectly:
    Highlight the files, right-click, Open with: StuffIt Expander

    Yes, you open with Stuffit and it expands each for for each folder. That's not what we need.

    We want to extract many zip files to a single folder, just as you can do on windows.

    If you're not afraid of the terminal, type...

    cd /path/to/your/folder
    unzip \*.zip

    this will unzip all .zip files in the current directory.
    Type unzip on it's own for a list of options.
