Download 7-Zip

WinZip and WinRar are not the only file compression tools available for a Windows user, and most of them may easily forget this aspect when downloading the previous mentioned tools. However, when you face a .7z file you will need to search for other compression applications and the dedicated one is 7-Zip.

7-Zip manages to create and decompress .7z archives along with other classic formats like .rar, .zip and even .tar. The .tar and .gz files are mainly used on Linux, but Windows user may also encounter them, making 7-Zip very handy, even as the standard compression tool installed on the PC.
