Using the Explorer Interface

Using WinZip's® Explorer interface, you can access most WinZip functionality directly from Windows Explorer or My Computer shortcut menus, from the Start menu, or from the desktop.

Here is a partial list of the things you can do using WinZip's Explorer interface:

  • Create new archives
  • Add to existing archives
  • Extract files from archives
  • Email WinZip files
  • Encrypt Zip files
  • Create self-extracting Zip files
  • Edit a WinZip job
  • Run a WinZip job
  • Configure WinZip

You can do all of these things without opening WinZip itself.
