WinZip for Mac

16 June 2021

Mac edition of established compression utility.

What is WinZip for Mac

WinZip now lets you access key features more easily, share links to files in the cloud, and zip and protect with confidence:

  • Zip and unzip files instantly with WinZip’s trusted compression
  • Protect files with strong AES encryption
  • Share directly to iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive and ZipShare, from within WinZip
  • Successfully email large files and minimize storage needs
New in 5
  • Easily share links to files in the cloud - WinZip Mac 5 automatically generates a link when you upload your zip file to a cloud service. The link is placed in your clipboard so you can easily paste it into other apps, such as Skype, for quick sharing.
  • Apply to all files in your Zip - Resize images in a Zip file without having to manually unzip and then zip them back up.
  • Resize images - Resize images any time you create a Zip file, not just when emailing.
  • More resize options - Choose from two additional options for resizing images: X-Large (1920 x 1536) and XX-Large (2880 x 2304).
  • Actions pane - Easily access frequently used features, including encryption, image resizing, link sharing and zip actions, on this new context-sensitive pane. Show or hide the Actions pane as needed with the new toolbar button.
  • Quick Action button - Use this menu on the Zip pane selection bar for fast access to many actions, including Unzip, Rename, Delete, Get Info and Quick Look.
  • Preserve the View type - During the Save process, WinZip Mac now saves the currently selected view type before saving the Zip file and then restores the view type when it re-opens the Zip file. This prevents the view type from changing during a Save if the current type does not match the default type.
  • .app file display - To simplify unzipping .app files in a Zip, they are now displayed as a file in the view instead of as a folder.
  • Default SaveLast Access Locations - A "New file location" default is used when saving a new Zip file. There is also a last accessed location to use as the default when requesting a location that is "from this Mac" or "to this Mac". And there is a last accessed location used as the default when requesting a location that is "from the iCloud Drive" or "to iCloud Drive".
  • Re-use password - Additional encrypted files are added to a Zip of encrypted files using the same password, rather than requesting an additional password. Password re-use is available for the length of that Zip session.
  • Check your password - Select the new "Show Password" checkbox to view your password and ensure it is entered correctly.
  • Apply to all files in the Zip - Encrypt files in an existing Zip without having to manually unzip them and then zip them back up with encryption enabled.

What's new in WinZip

Version 9.0.5520:
  • New! Convert compression format:
  • Open and convert content from a wide selection of industry-standard compression file types using WinZip® Mac 9. It’s easy to instantly convert a LZH, LHA, RAR, 7Z, TAR, Z, GZ, TAZ, TGZ, BZ, XZ or Z file into a Zip or ZipX file.
  • New! Expanded efficiency with duplicate file detection:
  • You might not realize it, but your compressed files often contain duplicate files, adding to the size of your zip file. WinZip Mac 9 detects and zips duplicate files using an internal link to save you space. Your unzipped duplicate files remain the same size and structure, but your Zipx files will be smaller than ever.
  • ENHANCED! Secure file backup and space saving (Pro Only):
  • With the freshen backup option, WinZip Mac 9 backs up only the files that have changed, resulting in a faster backup. And faster backups mean you spend less time wondering if you have a secure copy of your important files.
  • ENHANCED! Military grade encryption out-of-the-box:
  • Benefit from the security of AES-256 encryption, used by Banks and Military agencies, to ensure the highest level of encryption and protection of your files. Ensure safe storage with default AES-256 encryption of your most important files - no matter where you store them.
  • ENHANCED! Full visibility of compression statistics:
  • Review the compression stats right after creating a Zip or Zipx file. This time-saving feature gives you full visibility to the compressed and uncompressed file sizes, storage used, number of files added, and the storage needed for the compressed files.
  • New! Mac clipboard support:
  • Simply copy and paste files from your Mac to a Zip or Zipx file. This quick step allows you to transparently manage what you want to add to a Zip as you copy files from a folder and paste to your Zip file, replicating your file and folder structure.
  • ENHANCED! Resize your WinZip file manager:
  • Now you can resize the WinZip files pane, allowing you to have more space to managing files and folders or see more of what is inside the Zip file.
  • ENHANCED! View PDFs without opening:
  • Review PDF files before unzipping them and select what file to extract before extracting them. You can also view each file as a thumbnail and review the content type before extracting it, which saves time, and keeps the files organized.
  • New! Watermark PDFs (Pro Only):
  • Watermark PDFs when adding to a Zip or Zipx file, providing an extra layer of security to your documents without complicated tasks. Just select "watermark" in options before zipping the PDF and WinZip will do the rest.

Big download then prompted to pay and then crashed on Catalina. What gives?! Found a free unzipper instead that works great.

Should've paid attention to fwilkinson's review. Over 200mb. Expensive, clunky, slow. Tried to install other products. Crashed. Please stop bringing Windows crapware to Mac!

No need for this over priced piece of bantha excrement. There are many free alternatives available including Betterzip The Unarchiver and so on. I made the mistake of installing the win version on a pc and after the trial ran out it began constant nags and annoyances -which continue to this day even AFTER uninstalling it. So nice that they bury nagware that is not removed when the program is uninstalled and someday I'll have to spend time researching how to remove the garbage. So, like on South Park when the Yo Gabba Gabbaites told Foofa about showing her 'strange' on TV -Don't Do it!

Winzip works great but it forgets you purchased it. I have had to purchase it more than once and there are plenty of options for this product so why bother with the hassle.

This really is a frustrating piece of software. It is very picky about the kinds of files it will recognize. For example, I sometimes want to edit or pull an image from a cbr file and the easiest way to do this (that I know of) is to append the .zip extension to the file and open it up. Entropy does this without a problem Unarchiver (I think that's what it's called) did too (when I last used it). Winzip gives me errors. It also doesn't like numbered archives. I found some ancient (by web standards!) files that ended with a sequential number string (xxxxx.0001, xxxxx.0002 etc) and wanted to know what they were. Winzip volunteered to open them (it has a habit of doing this without asking) but couldn't. Entropy, again, opened them no problems (turns out it was an archive of old TV shows BTW). Entropy was last updated in 2013 and still blows Winzip out of the water. Now, the thing that really irritates me about WinZip is the number of steps required to open an archive in the first place! I can't choose a default place or way to open an archive, so when I want to open an archive I have to click the "unzip" icon, then choose from a list of services that I want to open the archive on my mac, then choose the location on my mac where I want to open the archive, then open the archive. So annoying! I was going to rate this two stars, but because the developers want $30 for something of this quality, I think one star is fair.

Very buggy on 10.10.5. Furthermore, now there's the XCodeGhost spyware problem. WinZip for iOS was coded using a spyware infested Xcode. So it's possible that the OS X version is infested as well. I don't know how probable that is, and I don't know if the spyware can also run on OS X, and not only on iOS, but I suggest everyone stay away from WinZip until we know more.

Just doesn't work with Yosemite 10.10.4. It falls into an infinite loop due to the use of setShowSplitter which is a deprecated function.

They could at least change the name of the software... If you really need something more than system built-in tools (i.e. for RAR files, 7ZIP, segmented files, password protected archives etc.) then the BetterZIP is simply the best. And I am not developer of BetterZIP. I have just checked and it turned out that I purchased my first copy/version of BetterZIP in late 2007 !!! And it never let me down.
