Deliberately ruined interface

WinZip has a long history of being an acceptable, if not great, unzipping program. Now drag-&-drop has been yanked in favor of selecting the files you want to extract and then waiting forever while it doesn't extract them.

WHAT!??!?!!!?? SUBSCRIPTION!!!???!!??

Windows did an automatic update and now winzip is missing. I searched in the Windows store and what do I see, but a message saying there is a subscription fee after 14 days. I sure hope I don't have to dispute an unauthorized charge in two weeks!!!!! No wonder Microsoft is losing market share and trust!!!

It sucks.

Zipping a file should be a simple right click/send to/ zip file. Not open an app, dump the file in, and figure out exactly where the zipped file landed so you can drag and drop it into the parent folder. Stupid set up centered on "oooh look at our product" rather than ease of use. Should be included with Windows 10... I know this whole app thing is to make mo' money, but nickel and diming your users will definitely lose you customers. This set up is dumb from start to finish... I'll find something else.

How do I find the file?

It only shows the file in the app, and forces me to "share" through the app, so I can't attach a file to an e-mail. Why do you think I am zipping a file in the first place?!?!?

The once-mighty WinZip has fallen. Subscription? Seriously? The interface sucks - nothing good to say about this version.

difficult to uninstall, never used

cannot uninstall because it does not appear in installed programs, pc was upgraded from win 7 to win 8.1 and cannot remove this program, also cannot change file associations back to standard windows explorer.

Totally a useless program now

How did WinZip fall so far? I can only access zip files from this horrid interface and share through their horrid sharing app? Who would use this?

No longer free

I downloaded the free version of WinZip, went to open it and got that my trial subscription was already over and had to pay the $7.99. I never downloaded this before so never had the trial version to begin with.

Something's missing!

I'm using the trial and, if I remember correctly, the PC version allowed you to password protect the archive itself and not just the files you add to it! So far I haven't been able to figure out how to do this. Also, there's no way to delete a file from an archive. I will buy only when these features are added! Other than that, it works fine. Note: there are free programs available in windows store that do the same exact thing. Come on WinZip, you can do better than that!!
