    zip to folder


    How do you change compressed (zip) folders into regular folders with out loosing anything? I downloaded a bunch of stuff and it is all in zip folders. Is there a reason I should keep them zipped, I have plenty of space.

    Hello logman,

    You can right click on the ZIP file, and click on "Extract All" to extract all contents in the ZIP to a folder at the same location.

    Thanks Brink I'll give that a whirl, I was not sure and I didn't want to loose any data.
