Before sharing your files via email or a chat app, you should make sure their size is as low as it can be, to ensure a smooth transfer experience.
File Compression is one of the numerous solutions you can resort to, whenever you want to compress files and folders.
The application can only be grabbed from Microsoft Store, so you need to provide valid credentials so as to be able to download and install it on your PC. No additional intervention on your part is required, so you can have it up and running within seconds.
The main window is minimalist and user-friendly, so even novices can operate it without any issues.
Understandably, you need to start by adding the files you want to compress, regardless of their extensions. You even have the possibility to select which of the added items should be processed and which ones should be ignored by checking their boxes or not.
Once you settled on the files you need, you can move on to the next step, that of settling on the target format for the compressed package. You can choose from various options, namely ZIP, TAR.GZ, LZ4 or 7Z.
On the down side, you cannot use this application to protect the resulting files with passwords, and this means they can easily be decompressed with any third-party software that supports this function.
You can also rely on File Compression to decompress your packages by simply loading them within the utility.
All in all, this software solution is a quick and basic app especially created for novices who want to compress and decompress files even if they have little to no technical skills.
