What is a .ZIP file?

zip file icon

The ZIP format was first introduced in 1989 to compress one or more files and directories to reduce their size. The format quickly grew in popularity with many utilities

and operating systems, including Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS, supporting the format. ZIP files may be used to store all types of files, including applications, images, documents, and video files.

Since the ZIP format is commonly used for compressing files, you may acquire a ZIP file in many ways. You may receive a ZIP file via email from a coworker, family member, or friend. Or you may obtain a ZIP file when downloading programs, images, or video files from a website or cloud storage service. File Viewer Plus is a great option for extracting the contents from these ZIP archives.
