Cant extract multiple game parts

I apologise if this isn't the right place to ask this, but well I downloaded a game in multiple parts but couldn't extract it perfectly as i could on windows. On windows I used to just select all files and extract the 1st one but the default archive manager doesnt extract them all in one, it just extracts the 1st part which is useless. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks.

What is the compression format?

Sorry for late response, its .rar

.rar format is proprietary to Windows. Linux respects this, so the default Archive Manager may not fully be able to extract it. Notice you must pay for winrar products.
Fortunately, performing an extraction is Open Source:

sudo apt install unrar

With that installed, you should be able to Right Click the file, then using the Other Options, extract using Unrar.
Or you can use the terminal:

unrar e example.rar


unrar e example.rar /home/$USER/Downloads

Ahh finally, thank you very much Aravisian.
