    You can right click a file in Windows 10 to zip and unzip. No third party software required.

    I use WINRAR. More efficient archive system. Will work fine with all archive formats such as ZIP as well.

    7-Zip is a better option.   You do need a UN-Zip file in case you download a Zipped file.

    Zipped Files are Compressed and you need 7-zip to open them.

    7-Zip is a better application of that type.

    I've used WinRar for so many years that I finally paid for it last year. Some like 7-Up. No, you don't actually NEED them because Windows has the native capability. I just like the features that WinRar gives me.

    Windows 7 and Windows both include a build in feature for being able to open and use Zip files.  Unless you also want to save in other compressed formats (such RAR or TAR), or are going to be creating a lot zip files, you do not need the program.
