Note: If you turn on a Convert and Protect option after you add files to your Zip, you can still apply your Encryption and Conversion settings for all or just some of the files in your Zip by choosing “Apply to selected files in the Zip” from the Options button in the Actions panel.
WinZip Express works with commonly used applications so you don’t need to launch WinZip separately to zip, encrypt and share your files. Instead, you get quick access to a single dialog that combines many popular WinZip features in one place.
Simply click a file, folder, or selection of files and folders. Select Zip and Share (WinZip Express) from the Explorer context menu to open a WinZip Express dialog. Then select zipping, encrypting, sharing and other features.
To zip and share your Office file, just click the File tab in the Office application you're using to find the familiar Zip and Share (WinZip Express) button in the left column of the tab. If you click this, but have not yet saved the file that is in use, the Save As dialog will open and you can save the file. Once this is done, the WinZip Express dialog will display.
Once you install this add-on with Microsoft Outlook 2016, 2013, 2010, or 2007, it will zip your attachments and replace them with the Zip file. Plus, it will upload the Zip file to your selected cloud service when they exceed a certain size limit. A link to your Zip file is then included in your email message replacing the attached Zip file. Your recipient can click the link and download the file. You can easily configure this add-on, setting the maximum attachment size (the default is 5 MB) and choosing the features you use most, by clicking Options on the Express drop down menu.
Now you know how to create a zip file. Download the trial to see how easy it is for you to quickly zip your file(s).
