How To Use Winzip - Unzipping

Before beginning this tutorial make sure you have downloaded a copy of winzip and installed the program.

For this winzip tutorial on how to unzip a zipped file using winzip we are going to use a file called trucking.zip but you can use any zipped file - it really doesn't matter.

Step 1

Doubleclick the winzip file "trucking.zip". If you have just downloaded a copy of winzip from our site then you should get a screen with this box showing. Click on "I agree" (you can order later if you want).

Step 2

"Click Next"

Step 3

You will get this prompt - Do you want to add the folder C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Desktop to your Favorite Zip Folders?

The Path (C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\Desktop) will most likely be different from this - it depends on the location of where you are unzipping your zip file from (don't worry about it - is isn't important).

Just Click "No"

Step 4

On the next screen make sure the top radio button is selected - unzip or install from "trucking.zip" and then click "next".

Step 5

Now you need to select the folder where you want to unzip the zipped files. Winzip will create a path as "C:\unzipped\trucking". You can name the path anything you want as long as it is a legitimate path and file name. The most important thing is to make sure the checkbox "Display the icons after zipping" is clicked - this opens up the folder where all the files are stored. A good idea then is to copy and paste these files to a better location - such as "my documents".
