How to zip and unzip files and folders without any software on Windows 10?We usually have to send files and folders on internet. It is not possible to send folder. We have to zip it. We use many software to zip and unzip file. However, we can do it without any software on windows 10. I am going to explain how to zip and unzip files and folders without any software on windows 10.
First, I am explaining how to create a zip file.
First, open file explorer and locate files or folders that you want to compress and add in a zip file.
Then select files or folders, right click it and menu will come. Click send to and compressed (zipped) folder.
Windows allows you to write name. Write name what you want and press enter.
If you want to check zip files, double click on file explorer. It will be opened as a regular folder and you will be able to view files inside.
If you want to add more files, copy and paste here. You can also delete from here. Whatever you change here, that will be applied automatically. If you think everything is ok, close it and send it.
If your compressed folder (zip file) contains multiple files, you can extract them simultaneously. In order to it, locate the file. Right click and menu will pop up. Click extract all.
A dialogue box appears asking where you want to extract files. If you want to put them in a different folder, click browse and select path. If everything is ok, click extract.
The files will be extracted in destination and you can see them in a new window.
If you want to extract a single file, locate the zip file in file explorer. Double click it. It will be opened as a regular folder in a new window. It will show list of files.
Select the file and copy and paste in another folder. It will remain in zip file as well as in another folder where you pasted it.
