    What is zip file ?

    ZIP is an archive file format that supports lossless data compression. A ZIP file may contain one or more files or directories that may have been compressed.

    A ZIP file, like other archive file formats, is simply a collection of one or more files and/or folders but is compressed into a single file for easy transportation and compression. The most common use for ZIP files is for software downloads.

    All our products are compressed in zip files are delivered to you in this format.

    How to open ZIP file ?

    In order to work with zipped files, they must be unzipped or extracted first. Windows has a built in program called Windows Compressed Folders which can do this for you.

    If you have a zip file and you want Windows to unzip it, right-click the file and select ’Extract All’. This should bring up the ’Compressed (zipped) Folders Extraction Wizard’. To extract the file or files, select a directory or folder where the wizard can send the files and click Extract.
