UNZIPPING: How Can I Open Zip Files Without WinZip? (1006-1760)

You don't have to have WinZip in order to unzip files!

Since Windows-XP was introduced there has been a free un-zipping program built into Windows. It is included with XP, Vista, and Win-7 operating systems.  Just double click on a zipped file and Windows will open the file for you. 

Choose "EXTRACT ALL" under the FILE menu.  All the files inside the zip archive wil be placed into a non-zipped folder with the same name as the zip file and in the same directory as the zip file you just opened.
