Create zip files

Zip files allow you to store your files in less space. This is especially helpful when you are trying to share files with friends.

To create a zip file, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Documents icon from your desktop.

  2. Search for the file or folders that you would like to send or make smaller.

  3. Right-click on the file or folder and select the Compress... option that you will see.

Your computer will create a compressed copy of the file or folder, which will appear right next to the original. You can move that zip file somewhere else, or share it more quickly and easily than if you tried to send the original!
