Tools (WinZip Options)

This tab allows you to enable, disable, and schedule the background tools that are bundled with WinZip®. These tools may help your computer to run smoother and more efficiently. Check or uncheck the box in front of each listed tool to enable or disable the tool.

The current list of background tools are:

  • Documents File Cleaner - this tool monitors the Documents folder and prompts you to archive and/or delete old files in there.
  • Downloads File Cleaner - this tool monitors the Downloads folder and prompts you to archive and/or delete files that you have downloaded a long time ago.
  • Pictures File Cleaner - this tool monitors the Pictures folder and prompts you to archive and/or delete old files in there.
  • Recycle Bin Cleaner - this tool monitors the Recycle Bin and prompts you to clear out old files that it contains.
  • Temporary File Cleaner - this tool monitors the temporary files and prompts you to clear out old temporary files.

 

If you enable a tool, you can then edit the schedule frequency if you wish. Whether you enable a tool or not, you always have the option to click the Run now button to make use of a tool.
