Quick Zip is a powerful and fast utility that provides support to ZIP and other popular archive formats. This file compression tool offers all the bells and whistles required by power users, while keeping the program easy enough for novices to use. Quick Zip's button and pull-down menu helps users by ghosting unavailable commands until they're applicable. The multipane interface makes it easy to see files, folders, and archive properties. An extensive Help manual should give inexperienced users everything needed to be program power users.

Numerous options and methods to use this application means a steep learning curve for those who want to master every feature. However, operating Quick Zip can be as easy as dragging files to the interface for quick compression. In a testament to the program's flexibility, power users could play select multimedia files stored in archive files. This application easily creates standard compressed archives. Dragging a file or folder opens a dialog containing check boxes, pull-downs, and browse tools for numerous options. Users can quickly specify compression levels, actions, comments, and more or simply click a button to accept default values.

Quick Zip compresses well and fast. It offers more options than even power users will regularly use. However, it's drag-and-drop default operation will attract inexperienced users. This freeware deserves a test by anyone looking for a robust and useful compression tool.
