Why You Need To Install 7-Zip

You might as well go ahead and install 7-zip now, you're going to need it.

Why? Well, not because you want to use the fancy shmancy .7z compression. Nah, .zip works just fine. And not because you need a way to extract .zip files - Windows has fine built in support (sure, it took them long enough to add it - but it's there now).

Nope, you need 7-zip because sooner or later one of the following will happen:

  • Some joker will send you a .rar file, which is yet another zip like format
  • You'll want to extract or browse through a .iso file

7-zip will handle both of these cases seamlessly.
