Here are two sets of steps you can take to create Zip files using WinZip for Mac.
If you plan to encrypt files that you zip, you should configure WinZip Preferences to insure that your preferred encryption strength is used. Then, when you are ready to zip your file(s):
Note: If you choose a cloud service, other than iCloud Drive, you will have to login the first time. After that, the display will be similar to the picture above.
After you create your Zip file (even before you save it), you may click one of the Email buttons below the title to send it as an attachment using the Mail app. The button on the left, which looks like an envelope, will attach the new Zip file directly to a Mail message (the button in the Actions pane is the same as this). If you click the Email button on the right, your Zip file will be uploaded to a cloud service and a link allowing the receiver to download the Zip file will be inserted into a Mail message. You also can use the Share button for additional sharing options. Similar to the Email a link button, the Share button will upload your Zip file to the cloud service you choose, obtain a link to the file, and will place that link in either Mail, Messages, Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn depending on what you select (the Share elsewhere button in the Actions pane does the same). The Share via clipboard button in the Actions pane is similar to the Share button, except that the link created after uploading your Zip file will be copied to the clipboard. This will allow you to then paste that link into a different email application or anywhere else you might want to use it.
With WinZip for the Mac, you can right click (or press the CTRL button and click) files and folders to create a Zip file. When you right click a file, the context menu will display and you will find two WinZip features at the bottom of the Services submenu. Those features are Email as Zip File and Add to Zip File.
If you click Add to Zip File, a dialog having the same name will open.
A suggested file name will display that you can change if you wish. You can also choose where the Zip file will be saved, change the file format, and/or choose to encrypt the file(s) being added if you want. Just click the Zip button to finish creating your Zip file.
