Hi,

These should help :

Zip and unzip files
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/zip-unzip-files

Choose the programs Windows uses by default
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/choose-programs-windows-uses-default

Windows does not natively support rar files so you need a 3rd party program
such as 7-Zip - Free.

7-Zip - Free
http://www.7-zip.org/

Hope this helps.

Hi, thank for your post .

 

In the  "associate a file type or protocol with a specific program"
"click on an extension" - I do no have extension of .rar and .zip to selected,

what means, I am not able open any files! why not there?

second: I am not able to install drivers downloaded to update as the extension not existing in system. 

so could be time be taken to control old Modem Driver to update,

as I had experience of the way- how could put to sleep a computer and take control of commands.

 

Try harder please to advise me how I can replace it ??? help me to save my beautiful  Windows8.

Hope  to hear from you...
