    Win10 has built-in support for ZIP files; however, I would definitely recommend using 7ZIP. It's my go-to program for handling ZIP files and other compression formats.

    7-Zip 18.05(most current version) works fine in Windows 10 and is what I use frequently. (y)

    Make sure you keep it updated. There have been vulnerabilities detected in it.
    I think I updated it 3 times this year (Win 7 computers).
