The program has many useful features and supports different operations such as rename, move, copy, archive (as zip files) and deletion. Customization of WinMerge can be accomplished easily; users may change colors and other visual elements.
Overall, the user interface of WinMerge is well done and user-friendly. Its various features and options make it a perfect tool for many different sets of users from photographers to programmers alike.
