    You want to install UnRarX.

    When the app is open, just drag any one of the .rar files onto its icon in the dock and it does its magic.

    In what way? What does it say when you try it?

    Sometimes rar files are protected so you will need a passkey to decompress the file.

    seems like it is a one time use thing and then it is gone.
