About 7-Zip (64-bit)

7 Zip is a  compression tool that is 100% free and delivers a high compression ratio. It packs and unpacks the following file formats: 7z, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP and WIM, and can unpack more than 30 file formats.

7-Zip (64-bit) Review

7 Zip is a free file unzipper program that you may install and use on your device. There is no need to sign up and no need to pay for a subscription. Your regular Windows unzipping facility probably doesn't unlock RAR files, but 7 Zip does allow you unzip RAR files. You are able to unzip TAR files, ISO files and ZIP files.

7 Zip is not as stable, nor is it as complex, but it works as a very simple file unzipper, and it is very compact. If all you are looking to do is zip and unzip files, then there is no need for a paid unzipper and no need for a complex or large program. 

This program works on Windows 10, and over the years it has been updated as new operating systems come out. Since Windows has never had an unzipping program that opens RAR files, it is likely that this tool will continue to exist in the future and will continue to be updated.
