WinRAR 5.60 English version. This Development & IT is buy software for Windows Android developed by Rarlab.

WinRAR is a file compression program that can be used to open, create and decompress RAR, ZIP and other format files. The latest version also supports RAR5, the new compression algorithm.

Why use WinRAR?

WinRAR is a program that compresses files so that they take up less space on your hard disk. It supports three compression formats, ZIP, RAR, and the new RAR5 format; introduced with this release, RAR5 offers a better compression rate. It'd s great alternative to WinZip and 7-Zip. 

WinRAR gives you the option of protecting the compressed file with a password using a 256-bit AES encryption algorithm. Perfect for hiding your files from prying eyes!

The app can also create self-extracting files, or files that are decompressed automatically with a double-click, as well as including improved features for repairing damaged files.

With regard to the decompression functions, WinRAR supports 15 different formats : RAR, ZIP, 7-Zip, ACE, ARJ, BZ2, CAB, GZip, ISO, JAR, LHZ, TAR, UUE, XZ, and Z.

The options menu is very detailed and lets you configure every aspect of the program. It's definitely useful for the most demanding users, but it might end up confusing those who are less experienced.

Open and create compressed files? A no-brainer...

The main functions of WinRAR are all easily accessible from the top bar of the interface: Wizard, Virus Scan, features to add/remove files, and to create self-extracting files.

To open a compressed file, just right click on the file, click Extract File and then select the destination folder. You can directly execute WinRAR and then once inside the program, you double click on the file you want to decompress. Extracting the files can be made even more simple by using the wizard.

To create a compressed file, however, you can click with the right mouse button and select New/WinRAR Archive, then right-click on the file you want to compress and select Add to archive. To create a file that decompresses itself, simply click on self-extracting on the WinRAR interface and click OK.

WinRAR integrates with Windows Explorer, and can carry out compression/ decompression of files with just one click from the context menu.

The design of the program - obsolete and outdated - has not been altered for this latest version.

Everything you need for compressing and decompressing files

The most important innovation in this latest release, is the introduction of the RAR5 compression format. It should be noted, however, that any files created using this format can only be opened by users of WinRAR 5.0.

WinRAR is compatible with Windows 8, 7, Vista and XP, and the installation file is compatible with 32 and 64-bit systems. In addition, it can integrate with the antivirus installed on your PC and support a wide range of formats.

Unlike ZipGenius or 7-Zip, WinRAR isn't free, but it does include many more features and configuration options. Compared to competitors such as WinZip WinRAR also offers the best compression ratio and more speed.

Ultimately, if you need an efficient compression/decompression program with advanced features, then WinRAR is the way to go.

This site installed adware together with the program. This is not the official site for WinRAR. I unchecked the mark for letting them install additional programs but they ignored it and installed adware called BestOffer.

WinRAR is a very simple and easy to use file archiver.. WinRAR is a very simple and easy to use file archiver. When you click on a compressed file, it will instantly show you everything there without a tree-style panel in the way. It is also very easy to drag and drop all of the items in the compressed file to another location with WinRAR. If you need just need something simple to open up your compressed file and either don't mine paying after the trial ends or don't mind the nag screen after the trial ends, then this is definitely one of the best.

I paid but never received license code.. I paid but never received license code. I emailed support many times and never received an answer. I received confirmation of purchase and order # but never the license codes. I am going back to WinZip as they now include RAR and all other files and much more convenient and no trick free downloads with viruses.
