Free alternatives to WinZip?
On my work computer I use WinZip a lot and am overall very happy with it. I recently bought a new laptop for personal stuff (social media, games, personal email etc.) and I need to unzip some files on there, but I can't justify paying for Winzip on there too as I doubt I'll use it very much. I know you can get a free trial for Winzip that lasts a month that will do for now but is there a free file unzipper that I can use in future? Doesn't necessarily have to work as well as Winzip, just so long as it does the job and is free.
Thanks in advance.

Unless you are adding a password I see no reason to purchase anything. Windows has zip built in. To compress you just right click on the file and select "sent to" compressed file. To uncompress you just open what looks like a folder with a zipper.

Try looking into " Winrar " or " WinRar" . Something like that. Should be a totally free unzip program.
