Editors' review

This simple application unzips files in a snap--even the RAR files that the Windows tool can't open--but just a little user guidance would be nice.

When you install DropZip, it automatically adds an icon to the Quick Launch toolbar. Drag ZIP or RAR files onto the programs icon, and DropZip quickly decompresses them. The program can zip folders too, although it only handles one at a time.

Here's the catch: if you remove the program from the Quick Launch toolbar, you won't be able to unzip or zip files. Unlike similar programs, it doesn't offer Windows integration or allow you to launch the program and unzip files. Drag and drop isn't one way to unzip your files, it's the only way with this freeware program.

A basic help file would go a long way in preventing any user confusion. That said, DropZip is a nice complement to standard Windows file compression tools, and it costs nothing to use.
