What is a .ZIP file?

ZIP files contain one or more files compressed with Zip compression. The ZIP format was first introduced in 1989 for compressing files and directories to reduce their size and quickly grew in usage. Many utilities and operating systems, including Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS, support the format.

Since the Zip format is commonly used for compressing files, you may acquire a ZIP file in many ways. You might 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.
