Support for Zip Files

Windows XP/7/8

Double-click the archive icon and it will open like a folder. Then you can drag the files you want into another folder. Warning: Windows will let you open documents that are inside a ZIP archive. This is great if you just want to see what the document is. But beware that if you change the document and then want to save it, windows defaults to a temporary folder that you have trouble finding if you are not watching carefully. It is best not to work from inside a ZIP archive.

- Or -

Right-click the archive icon and select “Extract All…” and Windows will prompt you through the process.


Simply double-click the icon. The Finder will create a new folder with the same name as the archive file and decompress all the files from the archive in that folder.
