New Features

ENHANCED! New ribbon look-and-feel with context aware file management tools
Find more and do more! With a refined user experience and modern new icons, you’ll have visibility to WinZip’s powerful compression, conversion, and file management features. Plus, the context-aware ribbon adapts to what you are doing like accessing file and folder maintenance features, conversions, zipping and unzipping.

ENHANCED! Auto clean and organize your computer
What could be better than automated cleaning? Thanks to this efficient feature, you no longer need to click to take action; it simply happens. With our proven WinZip Background tools, you set the rules to remove old files which will save space, retain speed, and secure your files.

NEW! Files Shared to Me folder
All of your files in one place! Welcome to a streamlined process that lets you instantly find all the files others have shared with you. WinZip supports multi-cloud, so you can access Google Drive, OneDrive and many other cloud-based storage files from coworkers, friends and family in a single app.

NEW! Batch conversion capabilities
With this flexible option, you can perform a variety of conversion tasks simultaneously including converting a file to or from a PDF, combining files into a single PDF, converting or reducing photos, signing a PDF, or adding a watermark. Simply select the files you want to change, then choose the appropriate conversion options you want to apply, and you’re done!

NEW! Seamlessly switch between Windows Explorer and WinZip
You have options! Right click on a folder to open a file in either WinZip or Windows Explorer. With a single click from Explorer, switch to WinZip and get direct access to WinZip’s advanced file management tools like bulk file rename, conversion, and encryption.

NEW! Quick access to recent contacts
Get to your most-used contacts faster and more efficiently. WinZip now offers an option for a quick selection from your contacts list of recently emailed recipients. No need to spend time searching your entire address book!

NEW! Personal Cloud NAS drive support
Connect WinZip to Western Digital My Cloud Service and access your files on your personal cloud, no matter where you are. Just like Cloud Services, such as OneDrive or Dropbox, you can use WinZip to browse and manage the files at home from anywhere using your personal WD My Cloud.

ENHANCED! More filter options for zipping files
With WinZip’s filter functionality, you can choose to only include Word documents or images or other specific file formats. Now, you can replace an existing file in a Zip file with a newer version and choose whether to add new files to your existing Zip file.

ENHANCED! Streamlined Actions Pane
Stay one step ahead with convenient access to the features you need to complete your task. With an updated streamlined Actions Pane, you can now save, email, share features, and more, on selected items in the file or zip pane to save you valuable time.

ENHANCED! Combine files into a single PDF (Pro/Enterprise)
We’ve expanded our PDF capabilities! With the Combine Files feature, you can merge multiple PDF files into a single PDF or convert non-PDF files into a single PDF file. In addition, you can take a collection of office files, images, and PDFs and merge them into a single PDF inside a zip file in fewer steps.

NEW! Support for Windows Environmental Strings
Enter generic keywords (called Environmental Strings in Windows) in the WinZip file chooser to locate files and folders that are specific to your computer and originate from a local drive, network device, or cloud service.

More efficient file compression with duplicate file detection
You might not realize it, but your Zipx files often contain duplicate files, adding to the size of your zip file. WinZip 26 scans and excludes duplicate files, instead storing them as a link to save you space. Your files stay the same - but your Zipx files will be smaller than ever.

Experience better Zipx Compression
WinZip adds the ZSTD compression method to Zipx. With ZSTD, WinZip can compress and decompress many file types faster, while achieving compression rates better than DEFLATE and DEFLATE64 compression methods.

Organize your photos in the cloud
Use WinZip to automatically organize all your photos by year and month. Say goodbye to endless scrolling looking for photos - it's now easier than ever for you to store, manage, and share your most important memories.

Seamless integration with Microsoft Teams
You can now share Zip files with your colleagues in Microsoft Teams through WinZip’s brand-new Microsoft Teams integration. Simply use WinZip’s Instant Messaging function to effortlessly share zip files to your chosen Microsoft Teams channel.

Automatically save cloud files
WinZip has always made it easy to work in files stored in the cloud, but WinZip 26 takes it to a whole new level. WinZip 26 automatically saves your work on cloud-based files, ensuring you never lose important work.

Access and edit files shared with you by others
Easily access shared folders in OneDrive and Google Drive to work more effectively with your team. It's straightforward to see which folders belong to someone else, and WinZip 26 enables you to zip, unzip, encrypt, and decrypt files saved in shared folders.
