ZipCentral is a free and easy to use zip file manager with all the utilities you need to manage your zip files. The goal of ZipCentral is to be the most robust freeware zip-package you can find today. It is a great tool for the beginner as well as the expert. Working with zip files has never been easier!

Version: ZipCentral 4.01
Excellent zip opening features, with the option of extracting to a folder, of making a new folder, of making a new .zip file, of adding files to an existing .zip file, etc. Just useful. This program will sometimes open files that 7zip does not recognize. Easy to use. Note for users of newer Windows platforms: If you ever want to use older software and have it run well, right-click the executable (.exe) file and click on "Properties" then go to the Compatibility option and tell it to run as if for an older Windows machine. I don't remember if I had to even do this for ZipCentral, but just in case, you can try it.
None. It's a pretty simple program.
Works great even with newer Windows platforms. Great companion to 7zip with more extraction options and the ability to open some files that 7zip can't open.

I just confirmed that Zip Central also works in Windows 8. Again, I highly recommend it. It is a nice free program without any bloatware or annoying features. It runs quick and does not use many resources.
