    As title say's, I'm looking for application that can unzip multiple zip's into the same directory. I've tried Stuffit, Zipeg, Unrarx, The Unarchiver, but can't find that fuction in neither of them.

    Greets!

    They probably all extract to the original file path. See if any of them has a setting to NOT use original file path.

    I was looking for an app too but decided to do it in the terminal.

    here's how you do it (this example is to extract all zip files to a directory called test
    Code:
    unzip -jo \*.zip -d test/
    to be more specific, try to add the name of the zip file to the wildcard
    so if you have aaa01 aaa02 aaa03,

    it would be
    Code:
    unzip -jo aaa\*.zip -d test/

    You probably could even write a Bash script to handle other compressed formats like .tgz, .tar, etc.
