Is there a zip program with windows 7 and if so, what is it called and where is it?                      


Type this "Compress and uncompress files (zip files)" in the Help and Support program's Search Box.  It will give you details like these.


"Right-click the file or folder you want to zip (compress), point to Send to, and then click Compressed (zipped) folder.


  • To extract a single file or folder, double-click the compressed folder to open it. Then, drag the file or folder from the compressed folder to a new location.

  • To extract the entire contents of the compressed folder, right-click the folder, click Extract All, and then follow the instructions".
