how about using Bandizip so you will get mark-of-the-web for extracted files, compatible with smartscreen?
I know winrar is the most familiar and easiest to use but it's worth a try
I tried bandizip and I miss winrar a bit
Not really worried about mark of the web. Winrar gives me a higher confidence on the devevoper and exploit researchers putting the effort to keep it secure.
I prefer trusted vendor with proven record through many years than features i don't need. Even if bandizip is better in every aspect i would still choose winrar for the above reasons.

@SHvFl where is musicbee lol? Portable?
Yeah, i have more stuff in a folder on the second drive that are portable but they don't count. I mostly Spotify these days though so it's been a while.

Changes:
If you want a free easy to use office application it's a better idea to use wps free (block with firewall to not have ads) instead of libreoffice. Doing anything not dead simple with libreoffice requires extensive knowledge of the software and a lot of clickssssss.
