    Question [Beginners Tutorial] On How To Install Winrar

    [Beginners Tutorial] On How To Install Winrar

    This is just a simple tutorial which helps you to install Winrar.

    Most of the files on the internet are compressed to make them smaller and easier to download.

    If the file you download is compressed you will need Winrar to unpack it to gain access to your files.

    I agree with cats, 7-Zip is a much better app that WinRAR. It can handle much more formats and as cats said, it's free!

    Re: [Beginners Tutorial] On How To Install Winrar

    Can you tell me what is the difference between Winrar and WinZIP? I know both are used to compress files. But what is the difference in features. Are they both same company?

    sometimes (not often) certain zipped/rar'd files have a problem extracting if not using the exact program either winzip or winrar, just install both, problem solved Hidden Content

    I like 7-Zip, but I wish the author would come up with a facility to extract incomplete 7z files.

    Re: [Beginners Tutorial] On How To Install Winrar

    I've been using WinRar since I knew how to use a computer many, many years ago. I've tried 7-zip but the interface seemed so foreign to me after using WinRar for so long. Haven't encountered a problem yet so won't be changing any time soon.

    I've always prefered winrar over any other archive proggy. Winzip back in the day but rar now. Never taken a shine to 7zip.

    I have always used WinRAR as it had been the fastest and quickest compress, archiving and extracting files than WinZIP. Though when I used 7 zip it seemed almost the same as WinRAR. I would not go about changing WinRAR but I do not need to use the many features WinZIP has.
