#5 Unzipping and Zipping File Folders

Postby krafteekaren » Fri Jan 13, 2006 5:45 pm

Unzipping a zipped file folder

1. Download the zipped file on to your desktop or where ever you want the zipped file at. It can always be moved later if you want it moved.
2. Double click on the zipped folder and you will either see more files after it opens into another window or you will see a folder.
3. On left side of that window you will see Folder Tasks, under it will be Extract Files, click on it. Another window will pop up called Extraction Wizard, click next and it will ask the destination of where you want to put the file.
4. Generally it is easier if you keep the destination like the Wizard wants to, mainly because then you don’t have to go searching for it. Click next and when it is finished click Finish. Another window will pop up and then there should be all of your images.
5. To move them to your graphics folder, click on the first image, hold shift key down and then click on the last one. This will highlight them. On the left side you will see under File and Folder Tasks---Move the selected items. Another window will pop up asking where you want them to be put. Click on the folder and then click Move.
6. It is always best to keep your zipped files on another drive on your computer if you can or burn them to a Re-Writable CD. Then if your computer crashes you will have them.

Zipping a file

1. Gather up what graphics you want to zip, put them in a folder and name it.
2. Right click on the folder, scroll down to “Send to”, go over and down to Compressed (zipped) Folder and click on it. Your computer will do the rest and will compress everything down.
3. Then you can either burn to a Re-writable CD or move the folder to a different drive on your computer.

Opening Up a Zipped File

Ladies...seems some of you are having problems opening up the Address Book, so thought that maybe I would post some instructions.
Make a folder on your desktop by right clicking on your desktop, scroll down to NEW, over to FOLDER, name that folder Address Book or whatever you want to name it. Click on the URL link, then a window will pop up asking if you want to OPEN or SAVE, you want to SAVE. Then another window will pop up asking you where you want to save it to, find the folder that you just made on your desktop in the list and click on that Folder. Then hit SAVE. You will have a folder with a zipper down the middle in that folder when you are finished saving it, go to the next URL and do the same thing until you have all of the pages saved.
Once you have all of them, go to your folder, double click on each folder, one at a time, on the left of your window you will have under Folder Tasks....Extract Files, hit it. Keep hitting Next until the word FINISH comes up. Then you will see the page all unzipped for you. You can print it directly from there by right clicking on the page and scroll to Print.
If you need any other help then let me know.

Ladies...computer geek #1 DS said that if any of you are using Windows 98, it does not come with an Uncompressed Zip Program. You can go online and find a program called Winzip and it will open up any zipped files that you might download. So if you are running Windows 98 on your computer and can't get the Address Book pages to unzip, either download the program or email me and I'll send them to you in jpeg file format.
