WinZip is a popular utility that compresses and extract files with ease. It's an easy way to send large files and folders to friends, colleagues or clients.

WinZip supports more formats than any other compression tool on the market, including RAR, 7ZIP, ZIP, TAR, GZIP, BZIP2 and more. The program also includes support for cloud storage services like Dropbox and Google Drive.

WinZip works with Windows 7 through 10 (32-bit and 64-bit versions), as well as Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 and newer versions of Windows Server.

Why do people zip files?

Zip files are a convenient way to combine multiple files into a single, smaller file. This allows you to email or upload the file in one piece instead of having to send each individual file separately.

Because zip files contain other files, they can be opened and manipulated using many different programs. The most popular application for opening zip files is WinZip, which is available as a free download at www.winzip.com.

Zipping files is one way to reduce the size of your documents and photos before putting them on the Internet or sending them via email. Another option is to compress your files using an image editing program such as Adobe Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro (available at www.corel.com).

What are the most popular zip formats?

File Compression Formats

There are many different types of file compression formats available, including:

ZIP: This is one of the most widely used file compression formats and is supported by most operating systems. It's not as efficient as some other formats but it's also very easy to use.

RAR: RAR stands for "Roshal ARchive" (after its creator) and can be used to compress single or multiple files into a single compressed archive file. RAR files can be opened on Windows or Mac with WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit Expander (Mac). You can also open all kinds of RAR files with free software like 7-Zip which is available for both Mac and PC computers.

GZIP: GZIP stands for "GNU zip" and was developed by GNU Software Foundation as an alternative to PKZIP/PKUN
