FILEminimizer is a software application which can reduce the size of PPT, PPTX, DOC, DOCX, XLS, XLSX, and other similar file types. This type of tool can come in handy when you have a large number of Word, PowerPoint and Excel items on your hard drive, since it frees up some space.

The interface of the program is based on a standard window with a simple layout where you can use either the file browser or "drag and drop" method to import files into the queue.

So, you can check out the number, path and size of each item, and configure compression settings; concerning the latter option, you can select between strong, standard and low compression, or set up user-defined values by picking the screen resolution, JPEG, DOC and XLSX quality, as well as by making the tool keep the original JPEG compression factor.

Additional features of FILEminimizer let you immediately pack files and send them via the default email client, locate files on the computer, and remove an item from the list or clear the entire file queue. From the Settings screen, you can enable FILEminimizer to replace the original files instead of creating new ones, flatten the embedded objects, append a suffix to the filename, and to change the default output directory, just to name a few.

FILEminimizer supports multiple languages for the UI, has a good response time, and swiftly finishes a task while using a low-to-moderate amount of CPU and system memory. It has a good response time and creates output files with a significantly reduced size while sparing the quality. The tool may also install add-ins for Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Lotus Notes. We have not come across any issues during our tests; FILEminimizer did not hang, crash or display error notifications.
