How do I open .zip files?
A type of utility program is used to put files into an archive or .zip file. The same program or similar program is required to "unzip" or "unpack," the files. You can view the contents of the archive before you actually unzip the files. This can be helpful if you're not sure that you want to extract the files. Most archive or .zip files can be unzipped with any unzipping utility. This type of utility is available on the Internet. You can download an evaluation copy of WinZip at www.winzip.com. You should consult the program's help files for additional information about .zip files.
