How to Create RAR and ZIP Files on Windows

A format used to reduce the size and combine several files into one location [ZIP/archive files], it works more or less like a folder on your computer. [RAR] is a format that is not much different from ZIP, the RAR format is more often used to compress applications, documents, games, and other types.

The result of high-quality compression of [RAR] can shrink the file size up to 70% of its original size. While [ZIP] can only shrink about 60% of the original file size. In this article, we will explain how to create a ZIP/RAR file without and with a password.

2 Ways to Create ZIP/RAR Files in Windows

Before we go into the tutorial you must have the software and install it first, if you don't have it you can download WinRAR.
Choosing a security tool for files is an option for those of you who want to keep your files safe. In the RAR file security can be directly set a password while ZIP requires an additional application to create a password.

Method 1: Create ZIP/RAR Files Without Password

#RAR_FILES

1. Select data you want to create RAR - right-click on the selected file - Select WinRAR - Select Ad to [file_name].rar.
2. Wait until the compression process is complete.
3. The file has been successfully compressed RAR.
#ZIP_FILES
For this method, we do not need additional applications. Because without a password if you want to create a password you have to use an additional application to create a password.
1. Select data you want to create ZIP - Right-click on the selected file - Select Send to - Select Compressed [zipped] folder.
2. Wait until the compression process is complete.
3. The file has been successfully ZIP compressed.

Method 2: Create ZIP/RAR File with Password

in this way, in a 2in1 tutorial for making compression with a password, you just need to change the compression file format.
1. Select the data you want to create RAR/ZIP - Right-click on the selected file - Select WinRAR - Select Add to archive files.
2. Then, insert file name - Select compression format [RAR/ZIP] - then select [Set Password] for creating a password.
3. Then enter the password and re-enter the password you have entered for verification - then select OK.
4. Select OK.
5. Wait until compression finishes.
6. The file has been successfully compressed with an additional password.
7. If the steps you have taken are correct, when you open the compressed file, a dialog box will appear asking you to enter the password you created.
You can use RAR files but they have the disadvantage of being slower to compress. If you're just sending files that are small in size and without the need for security, you can compress your data with ZIP files which can cut down on processing time.
