Zipper - Free Zip & Unzip Program for Windows

This program can be downloaded and used freely. It is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7 and 8. After many thousands of downloads, this program is generally considered the best free zip and unzip program. It is easy and intuitive to use. Explaining how to use Zipper is harder than actually using it.

Zipper is a free compression program, and you don't need to pay anything for it. It doesn't contain pop-up ads or other annoying things. However, Zipper isn't free to maintain and wasn't free to create, because it contains commercial components, and was build with programming software.

While Zipper is a free program, it isn't a cheap program, and rivals many commercial programs in simplicity and ease of use.

It is a program that puts Zipper where you want it on your hard drive (usually in "Program Files") and puts a link to Zipper on your "Start" menu. This program is called: "instzip2.exe". When you download this program onto your hard drive, you can double-click it to start the installation process.
  1. Download the file to somewhere on your hard disc where you can find it again :-)
  2. Double click on the file to activate it. The install program will give you instructions.
  3. Extract the files to a directory of your choice. The files will be extracted to a subdirectory named kenzippr. So if you install in the C: drive in "Program Files", then the directory "C:\Program Files\kenzippr" will be created and the files installed in this directory.

The zip program is zip4.exe. That is, zip4.exe is Zipper. You can find Zipper by going to your "Start" menu and finding it on the "Programs" menu.
