Windows XP and Windows 2003 have built in ZIP file support. It is therefore, very easy to make and extract ZIP files using these operating systems.
If you do not have Zip installed on your computer yet, download Zip and install it on your PC.
Select the file or files or even folder or folders you want to add to be zipped. You can also create a new folder for the document or documents. Right click on it or them and select Send to and then choose Compressed (zipped) Folder.
After that, the files will be zipped, and you can see a file of which the extension is .ZIP.
The file name will be the name of the folder or file you compressed. If you compressed a selection of files, it will be the name of the first file in that selection.
