WinRAR (64-bit) allows you to open, create, and manage various types of compressed files through its intuitive and streamlined interface. This program offers a full set of features for manipulating and managing compressed files, and it works smoothly and efficiently.

Pros

Intuitive interface: When you attempt to open a ZIP or RAR file, this app automatically takes over and presents the contents of the compressed file, so that you can immediately access them. From this main interface window, you can then manage the archive by adding to it, repairing it, or protecting it, all using the tools readily available across the top of the interface. Even novice users will find their way around this program quite quickly.

Quick create or add: In addition to letting you open compressed files, WinRAR also allows you to create new ones or add to existing archives. You can do this either by dragging and dropping the files in, or by adding them using the controls across the top of the interface.

Cons

64-bit systems only: This particular version of WinRAR is for 64-bit systems only. If you have a 32-bit system, you can download a version optimized for that configuration. And if you're not sure, the 32-bit version will work on both 64-bit and 32-bit machines.

Bottom Line

WinRAR is at the top of the list when it comes to programs of this type. It's hard to go too long without having to open some type of compressed file that Windows can't handle, and so it's worth checking this app out. It's free to try for 40 days, but after that, you'll have to purchase a license for $29 to continue using it.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WinRAR (64-bit) 5.01.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 5.91

- Dialogs are centered inside of WinRAR window similarly to WinRAR 5.80 and not inside of entire screen as in WinRAR 5.90
- When editing an archived file with external software, extra measures are taken to reduce the probability of interfering with editor and opening its temporary files while editor still may need them.
- "Version to extract" field in archive properties opened from Windows Explorer context menu provides the additional information about ZIP compression and encryption algorithms, such as LZMA or AES. This information was already available in WinRAR "Info" command, but missed in archive information accessible from Windows Explorer.
- "MS DOS" and "Unix" host OS types are recognized and included for LZH archives in "Info" command. Previously the host OS field was always "Unknown" for LZH archive format.
- Files created by external editor and matching "Settings/Viewer/ Ignore modifications for" masks are never added to archive. Previously WinRAR still added them if some file not matching these masks was also created or modified.
- Bugs fixed:
  • empty file names were displayed inside of some Unix LZH archives;
  • WinRAR could not process more than 999 7z volumes in a single set;
  • if user cancelled the user account control prompt after changing "Integrate WinRAR into shell" option, a new state of this option was displayed in "Settings" dialog, even though the actual state of shell integration was not modified;
  • the main window size could be too small on the first run after clean install with no previous WinRAR version present;
  • WinRAR could stop responding after editing an archived file with external software in Windows 10 version 2004.
