This is a Total Commander freeware plugin that allows to extract resources stored

links to images and CSS files in the main HTML file.

What is MHT?
MHT is a file format that allows to save images and WEB pages in only one file. It
is usually saved by Microsoft Internet Explorer. Binary files (images, attachments,
etc...) are usually encoded using Base64 standard. WEB pages and CSS files are
encoded with Quoted-printable format.

How to use?
When your cursor is over one of the MHT files previously saved by Internet
Explorer, press "Ctrl + Page Down" to enter file. A list of the available resources
is presented and then you can extract them to the folder you want to. This plugin
does not allow to delete or pack files from or to a MHT file. It is only intended
for extraction. It does not need Internet Explorer to work.

the links to these files.
