Just Show Me: How to create a zip file in Windows 7

Today in Tech

Welcome to Just Show Me on Tecca TV, where we show you tips and tricks for getting the most out of the gadgets in your life. In today's episode we'll show you how to zip up a file in Windows 7.

When you zip a file, you compress it and make it smaller. While the majority of hard drives are big enough these days that file size really doesn't matter for most people, when you have to send a file as en email attachment, the smaller the file size the better. After a file is zipped, it can be easily unzipped on any Windows or Mac computer.
