Extracting PAK Files

Hey, guys. Sorry if this sounds like a dumb question, but it's my first attempt in modding Heroes 5. Have modded bits and parts of Heroes 3 before though.

Just wanted to ask how do I extract PAK Files? I've read through the WIKI and the entire Threads looking for answers, and Modders are simply saying extract them with an Archiver. I have WinRAR and 7-Zip here but I can't seem to find the option to extract them. Can't gain access to Textures or Game Mechanics Folder, etc.

Winzip, Winrar, even Total Commander I guess...

Edit: 7-zip...

@Lure_of_Lilith, a beginner but with great potential may be .
I've begun creating a library of modding guides and tutorials into an understandable language.

Organizationally speaking it is still a mess but some great guides can be found inside, check modding for dummies section, inside you can find many things including how to work with .pak files.

Also I will appreciate some feedback if you notice anything that is not looking right or not explained very well.
