Third-party installation offer

During the setup operation, you need to pay close attention to the steps of the wizard, as you will also be offered to install third party tools that are not in any way related to Free Unzip or required for it to function properly.

As such, you can decline or accept the offer, depending on your needs, the rest of the process undergoing as normal and allowing you to start working with the program as soon as you need.

Clean and easy to handle appearance

Free Unzip features a straightforward user interface, with little left to the imagination. Each button displays a tooltip to inform you of its role, so you can swiftly figure out how to work with it.

The main window allows you to load the archive whose contents you want to grab, displaying the comprised files in a queue, for you to browse through.

Effortlessly view, extract or unlock ZIP archives

For starters, you need to open the file you intent to decompress, by loading it into Free Unzip. Its contents are automatically revealed, specifying the filename and format; other details, like size or creation date, are not provided.

The ribbon buttons let you ‘Extract To Source Location’ or ‘Extract To Specific Folder’, bearing in mind that the utility will process all items, regardless of the fact that you may only need a single file from the ZIP. At the same time, you have the possibility of changing or removing the password from an archive, on condition that you know the current one.

A basic ZIP decompression instrument

To sum it up, Free Unzip is a useful albeit rather unimpressive application, which aims to assist you in extracting your files from ZIP archives, proving fairly effective at its task, thus making it accessible even if you lack the prior experience.
