First we need to know what is zipping a file. Zipping a file means compressing a large amount of file to make it smaller. So how can we zip a file? In my everyday work, I only use Winzip but there are other software that you can use to zip a file like the free 7zip.

Here are the steps:

  1. Winzip is one of the common zip file compressor. You need to find a zip file compressor like a Winzip. Install Winzip or 7zip if you don’t have a zip software installed already.
  2. Go to the folder of the items that you want to zip.
  3. Then right click and go to Winzip and click add zip to.
  4. Choose where archive that you will put your zip files.
  5. Then you need to click add so that the items to be zip will be placed and started to zip the file.
  6. It will take a little while to zip a file depending on the amount of the files that you want to zip.
  7. Then you can now see the zipped file on where archive you add it.

Zipping a file is a big help especially in emailing large amount of files such as images.
