WinZip Pro and WinZip Backup feature

Sharing the Zip File (WinZip Job Wizard)

When a WinZip® job is complete, you can share the new Zip file with others using social media and/or instant messaging. To use this feature, click Post to in the Specifications Complete panel of the Job Wizard and then click Social media and/or Instant messaging.

To share the Zip file, WinZip will send a link to a cloud storage location. So, if you want to share your Zip file, you must also configure your WinZip job to save the Zip file to the cloud.

  3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 if you want to share using more than one service.
  4. Click OK.
