If you need to shutdown the computer after cracking, check "Shutdown when finished". When the cracking is finished, the password(s) will be displayed in the "Passwords" area. Meanwhile, free ZIP Password Cracker will automatically save the cracked passwords by default in LastSavedPassword.txt in directory C:\Users\(username)\AppData\Roaming\Free ZIP Password Cracker. You can click "Load Last Saved Password" to directly open the TXT.

(Note: please write the password down or keep it in another document, because the cracker will only keep one password. Next time you crack a password, it will replace the last saved one with the newer one...)
