Zip Files – Use 7-Zip – Not Winzip

Looking a free zip program that is an alternative to Winzip ( there are many malware filled versions of this around on the internet at the moment ) that can assist you with unzipping , packing , unpacking windows files including rar files.

rar files are compressed files that need a program to extract the file embedded inside.

Then try 7 – Zip a Free program that runs on Windows.

After installation , locate the file you want to open

Then right click on the file

Then pick a destination for extracting the file by clicking in the box at the end of ” extract to”

In this case I have selected the desktop

Once you press OK it will put the newly extracted file on the desktop
