WinZip Functions Map

This WinZip® Functions Map shows how the functions on the WinZip Legacy Toolbar interface are related to the controls in the WinZip ribbon. The WinZip ribbon is only available if you are using Windows Vista Service Pack 2 or later.

In the table, "Use context menu" means to right click on the file or folder you want to operate on and then select the desired operation from the context menu that appears. If multiple files and/or folders are selected, the operation will apply to all of them.

Note that WinZip's first tab is labeled File in Windows 8. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, the first tab is only labeled with a small graphic and the tooltip shows Application menu.
