Zipped files are compressed, saving space. This makes downloading files from the Internet faster and allows software distributors to put more files on distribution media, such as a CD. Most zipped files end with the .zip extension.

Windows XP can unzip Zip files without needing any additional utility.

  4. Select Show extracted files. Check Finish. Your unzipped files will appear in the new window.

  5. Use the contents of the zipped file as instructed in the solution.
