Familiar interface
If you have already had a hard time compressing or unzipping a document, you know how important it is to have a reliable tool for the task. In addition, with the wide variety of formats available, it is also necessary that the chosen program be flexible and capable of handling various types of files.

WinRAR practically needs no introduction, being one of the most popular tools on the market to perform these tasks. Its interface is also well known, presenting functions divided into menus, but with the main tools they are displayed in the form of a button at the top of the screen, for easy viewing.

During the installation of the program you can already define which are the formats you want to associate with the application, checking the options you deem appropriate.

Compressing files
There are two ways to compress a folder or file. You can open WinRAR and use the available field on the screen to locate the compression target. That done, just click on the “Add” button. As an alternative way, you can click on the item with the right mouse button and select the option "Add to file".

Regardless of the way chosen, a new screen is opened for you to define the desired parameters for the task. First, it is possible to modify the name of the output file, by typing the option of your preference in the field available for that purpose. Then, you can choose the format for compression, selecting the alternative that you think is most appropriate among those available.

It is also possible to define the method to be used for the task (slow, normal, fast, etc.) and to perform the compression separating a file into several volumes. To do this, just indicate the desired size for each of them. In addition, you can choose a password to protect the file (in “Set Password”).

With these basic settings, you can now carry out the compression normally. However, if you wish, you can modify a number of other preferences in the other tabs available in the compression sector. When everything is as desired, click "OK". Once this is done, the operation is started automatically and the process can be followed in real time by the program interface.

Unzipping files
To unzip a folder or a file, click on it with the right mouse button and select the option “Extract files”. As an alternative way, you can also double-click the compressed document and, in the open interface, use the “Extract to” function.

Then, you can define methods for updating and replacing files and choose the directory in which you want to store the content to be unzipped. The operation takes just a few moments and you can follow the progress of the process in real time from the program screen.
