WinZip Mac Edition
Compress and decompress files using WinZip Mac Edition

For the Windows platform, WinZip has long been a stable application, making it possible to work with a large number of compressed file formats for both compressing and decompressing. Just like Windows, OS X has long supported the creation of compressed archives as well as extraction of files from such archives, but turning to a third party tool opens up a number of additional options.

WinZip Mac Edition supports Zip, Zipx, RAR, LHA and 7Z formats, and the application integrates tightly with OS X. Quick Look can be used to preview the contents of an archive before extraction, and of course you have the option of extracting a single file or an entire archive.

The application also offers security features that can be used to keep your files safe. Archives can be encrypted and password protected so they cannot be accessed by unauthorised people. If you do not want to encrypt and entire archive but would still like to keep files grouped together, you have the option of encrypting individual files.

WinZip Mac Edition acknowledges the fact that one of the main reasons for compressing files is to attach them to emails. As such the program provides the ability to compress and attach a series of files to an email in a single action helping to save time as well as storage space.

What's new in v5 (see the what's new page for more)?

- NEW! Easily share links to files in the cloud
- NEW! Apply to all files in your Zip
- NEW! Resize images
- NEW! More resize options
- NEW! Actions pane
- NEW! Quick Action button
- ENHANCED! Preserve the View type
- ENHANCED! .app file display
- ENHANCED! Default Save\Last Access Locations
- NEW! Re-use password
- NEW! Check your password
- NEW! Apply to all files in the Zip

Verdict:

WinZip Mac Edition is comparable to its Windows counterpart. It is fast and effective, but it is a Windows app at heart and there are cheaper alternatives available that are just as capable.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update build 1709

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows - Fall Creators Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10? The latest release brings back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1607 which is the August 2016 Anniversary Update.
