WinZip today introduces WinZip® 21.5 Pro, an update to WinZip® 21 Pro with new enhancements to streamline and simplify your file sharing workflow. WinZip 21.5 Pro is available now to purchase from and can also be downloaded free by WinZip 21 Pro users from directly within the application.

WinZip 21.5 Pro delivers renowned compression and encryption, together with time-saving file handling power. New enhancements include:

  • Create a split Zip file from Explorer: Easily distribute large Zip files without worrying about timeouts or failed uploads/downloads. This convenient feature creates a multi-part Zip file for easier distribution.
  • Files Pane tabs with Folder Trees: Files Pane tabs let you open, view, and manage different folders at the same time, instead of having to use multiple Windows Explorer windows. Conveniently see local, network, and cloud-based folders, and just drag and drop files from one tab to another to copy them. Try the Folder Trees option of the Files Pane to easily navigate through your combined computer, network, and cloud folder layout, making folder selection quick and easy.
  • Replace Zip Files with their content: Quickly and easily unzip a group of Zip files and replace them with their native files.
  • Automatic computer shutdown: For added security, you can now have WinZip Pro shut down your computer after running an automatic backup.
  • Enhanced link sharing from the cloud: With just a click, easily share a link to files and folders in your cloud services. Share your link by email, IM, social media, or the Clipboard.
  • Keep track of the files you share with ZipShare: Whether you share files from WinZip or ZipShare, you can now easily keep track of which files you have shared from right within the Files Pane in WinZip 21.5 Pro.

With WinZip 21.5, we've focused on the way you work to streamline how you use the application and make you more productive - no matter how you choose to share your files," said Bill Richard, VP of Development, WinZip.
