WinRAR is an archiving and compression managing software for Windows and Mac OS operating systems. You can use WinRAR to compress or archive electronic files into smaller RAR or Zip folders. WinRAR is a useful tool for backing up your file data, reducing the size of email attachments, decompressing files from the internet and creating new RAR file and ZIP file formats. This guide will present the steps required for downloading and installing the latest version of the program, WinRAR 5. 91.
WinRAR version 5. 91 is available in both 64-bit and 32-bit file downloads. You need to pay for the full version of WinRAR, but most people find that the more basic version works just fine for their needs. To download the software, type https://www.win-rar.com/start.html?&L=0 into your address bar or search “WinRAR Download” into your search engine of choice and click on the top result. Then click the blue “Download WinRAR” button on the right-hand side of the screen, then “Download WinRAR” again.
Click the downloaded WinRAR file at the bottom of your screen, then press “Yes” to allow the app to make changes to your PC. Click “Install”. This will instantly download the free trial version of the program, which is advertised for use for 40 days. Click “Ok”, then “Done” to complete the install. You will then be able to find the WinRAR file in your programs folder.
The quickest way to find WinRAR on your Windows 10 PC is to search for it in your “Start” bar. Double-tap to open the software. You can then start to add RAR files and compress, archive or decompress them as you wish. Learning to use WinRAR is fairly straightforward, and the “Help” tab can provide you with more info if you need it.
While WinRAR is free to use on Windows and Mac PCs, the program does lightly pressure users to pay for the full version, which comes at a small extra cost per user. However, WinRAR’s 40-trial actually lasts forever, so if you’re fine with the tools you have in the “trial” program, and you’re not a heavy user who could do with WinRAR’s more specialized features, there’s no requirement for you to move on from using the free version.
