This brief overview tutorial introduces you to each of the main WinZip concepts and features to get you working productively as quickly as possible.

You will get the most benefit from these lessons if you change the size of this window to leave enough room on the screen to have WinZip opened at the same time. As each screen describes an operation, you may want to try certain things with WinZip to gain an even better understanding. You can move through the tutorial as quickly or as slowly as you like. If you ever have questions when you are using WinZip, you may want to make use of the WinZip Knowledge Base.

As you explore this tutorial, you will find highlighted text that will take you to additional information about a particular topic. If you elect to take the detour, you can click on the Back button in your internet browser to return to where you left off in the Brief Tutorial.

Important: WinZip offers many convenient ways to work with archives. This tutorial approaches the topic using the main WinZip window and the tabs of the Ribbon interface as its base of operations. This is not the only way to access WinZip's convenient features. For example, you can use WinZip to zip and unzip files without leaving the Windows File Explorer. Once you are comfortable with the basic operations described in this tutorial, be sure to read Using the Explorer Interface, Using Drag and Drop and Hints and Tips.
