WinZip enables you to quickly and easily compress and decompress files, folders, and entire folder trees to save storage space and dramatically reduce e-mail transmission time, as well as encrypt and decrypt your sensitive documents.
WinZip includes two separate interfaces to accommodate all types of users. For those who are infrequent users of Zip files or just need to accomplish basic tasks quickly and easily, the Wizard interface provides simple, step-by-step guidance to make working with Zip files a breeze. For those who are comfortable with Zip files and need greater power and flexibility, the WinZip Classic interface has everything you need. Whichever interface you choose, the other interface is just a click away.
