This Free File Converter Even Handles Multiple Zip Formats


If you're a regular and frequent computer user, you'll need to use a file conversion utility.  However, most of us don't need to convert files very often, so such a feature is generally best done online instead of via an installable program.  Unless the data you're converting is particularly sensitive, of course.

My recent favourite discovery is a site called Convert.Files which lives at

Not only can it handle a multitude of document formats, it also copes with Autocad drawing files in .DWG files.  Which is not something I receive every day, but I did happen to need to open one the other day.  Convert.Files switched it to PDF for me, so I could open it in a PDF reader.

Convert.Files also has another trick up its sleeve.  It can convert archives between common formats such as zip, rar, 7z and tar.  Plus, it can also convert between a whole bunch of video, audio, presentation and ebook formats too.  So next time you need to open a file but you don't have an app that can handle it, try converting the file first.  It might be easier than finding a specific program that can handle the format you have.

When it comes to online conversions, is hard to beat. Massive number of different file formats supported, quick and easy.

Great tip Rob, Thank you.

I don't particularly like the interface of that got recommended below but I will have to use it because: SEEMS to be afflicted by cooperation with advertisement site(s). It does not load in Firefox with Adblock Plus and Ghostery (all fully up-to-date on Win 7).

And if there is an alternative I don't give up FF for anything.

Great tip, rob... thank you! :-)

I think has more formats. I've used it often with no problems.

Thank you!

Cool! Thank you, GreenWyvern! :-)

What I'd like to see is a free Publisher viewer!

Can't quite believe that with over $86 BILLION, Gates can't give it away like the other converters...
