I hope I'm on a forum for this topic. I searched for a WinZip forum and this came up. My lack of WinZip knowledge and where to find it may be my only problem. Here goes:
I upgraded from WinZip 14.5 to WinZip 16.5. In 14.5 I could zip a folder that had multiple files in it. 16.5 complains that I have to create a file when I try to zip a whole folder. Do you know where I can look in the settings to allow zipping a folder? As I have to put up to 16 files in a folder for a client every couple weeks it would be nice to be able to zip the folder instead of every file in it one at a time.

Hi Bob

The latest version of Winzip is 17.5 by the way, but have you had a look at this?

Yes I'm aware of 17.5 being available. I do not have a need to be up to the latest version of software when what I have fits my needs. I happen to get an opportunity a while back to acquire 16.5 and I installed it on a computer that I hadn't installed 14.5 (my previous version). 14.5 seems easier to deal with for my needs then 16.5 based upon the limited use I have. I had 14.5 installed on 2 computers and recently I decided to upgrade one of them. In my opinion, for my needs, that was a mistake as 14.5 did what I wanted without my needing to learn much about the program. 16.5 does not out of the box do what I was accustomed to from 14.5 so I was and am a bit disappointed. Your response seems to give the info I need so I gratefully thank you.

You're welcome Bob. :)

You could also consider this for older versions of Winzip.
