    I just wanted to know: what's the difference between winzip evaluation version and bought version?
    When I use winzip it says buy it or use evaluation version...

    Wow you're from the US but you don't know what evaluation is? They mean the trial version.

    No except one is a TRIAL While the other one isn't. BTW you never have to pay for it because if its like WinRAR then you can just close the page after the trial is over and keep using it. BTW why do you need WinZip? Can't you just use the Default unzipping thing from windows?

    Technically both is the same, its just the screen asking u to buy it is called the Nag Screen.
    So,
    Trial = Nag Screen
    Bought = No Nag Screen

    The only thing i Hate about 7-zip is you cant just click on the archive you have to right click it go over 7 zip and click on open archive or extract/whatever.

    With WinZip and WinRar, the trial versions will work forever to unzip/rar files, but after the trial period, they will no longer zip/rar files up and you'll get a nag every time you use it.

    @ZeWarriorReturns hit tools -> options -> plugins -> options, make sure the system tab is selected and uncheck cascaded contect menu.

    Should should be able to drag a right click as well.

    I've been using my trial WinRAR version for years. If I right click and extract that way, I don't get nagged. If I open the file, I can avoid the nag screen if I do whatever I need to fast enough. If the nag screen comes up, I just Alt+F4 and be on my way. [​IMG]

    I can still archive files with it too, so I'm not sure if what Rayder said is a recent thing or not.
