How To: Unzip compressed files

Unzip compressed files

learnaniche shows you how to unzip compressed .zip files using his own example. You'll need an unzipping program for this; usually, WinZip is standard. If you don't have it or if it's expired, you can search "WinZip" on a search engine and click "WinZip - Download Evaluation Page" or CNET's download page. If you're on CNET, just click "Download Now" to download it quickly. Save it to a destination and then open it from there to install it. When you click on the link to download the file, your zipping program will detect it and open a box. Choose the option "Save File" and save it in your desired destination. Look for it in that destination and double-click/ right-click "Open" to open the file. Hit "Extract" and "Yes" if you don't mind merging the new folder with the old one (learnaniche's example uses Vista, but similar windows should pop up with other operating systems also). Once it's extracted, find the folder you extracted to and open it. Inside are the unzipped files. If you follow learnaniche's step-by-step video tutorial, you'll soon be able to easily unzip all the compressed files you need to with a simple click!
