You should have software to unzip your data (one version is the longtime utility WinZip). You can get this software free on the internet. Download one of them and install it first in your computer. Now you right click on any folder. You will see an option of unzip file in context menu. Click on it.

Windows XP and Vista1. In Windows XP or Windows Vista, you can Right click on the file> extract all > next > next > finish Why Files are ZippedHave you ever had a file on your computer that was so ridiculously large it was all but impossible for you to send it to a friend as an email attachment? Or, even better, have you ever wanted to email someone a BUNCH of different files at the same time but didn't want to go through the tedious process of having to attach the files to the email one at a time? That's where the ZIP file format comes in.

To unzip a file, right-click the file, and then click Extract on the shortcut menu.

Zip a fileTo create a .zip file, right-click a file, such as Government Proposal.doc, and then click a command on the shortcut menu, such as Add to Zip file or Add to Archive, to create Government Often the zip utility shortcut menu also includes a command such as Configure or Options to access the zip utility's option settings. Unzip a fileTo unzip a file, right-click the file, such as Government, and then click Extract on the shortcut menu.

If you are a Mac user, you also can use enolsft RAR Extract for Mac to upzip your files.

Mount ZIP to a virtual disk

You should have WinMount first, you can mount ZIP files on a new virtual drive, or you can quick mount ZIP to current path as a virtual folder, so that you can use files without extraction, saves your time and disk space! For mac: you either just double click the file, or use a program. Your Mac should come with an app called "archive utility", so right click your zipped file, do "open with" then click "archive utility" you can also download an app called "the unarchiver" and it works the same way as archive utility.

What does unzip means in computer language?

A group of files compressed into one file using the "ZIP" algorithm is known as a zip file. This file can be read as a single file and is handy for sending or uploading said group of files as a single file. To unzip means the reversal of this process, the re-creation of individual, uncompressed, files and folders from a ZIP archive.You usually unzip a zip file when you receive a compressed file so the files function as they would in their normal uncompressed format.For example: You download a program you want to install, and the package is a zip file. You should firstly "unzip" or extract the files so you can run it properly.Note that ZIP and UNZIP are often used synonymous to compressing and archiving (ZIP) and decompressing and unpackaging (or: extracting) (UNZIP). However, ZIP (UNZIP) refer to just one representative of a whole range of algorithms used for the same purpose (that of combining multiple files into a compressed archive, and reversing that effect).
