File openers and archivers are one of the most important tools in your software workbox, and 7-Zip can become an essential piece of equipment if you work from home, or need to open and save large files. 7-Zip can help you turn folders packed with a large number of files into an easily transportable
folder, cutting down on the size of attachment you have to send, and also aking it easy to transfer a large number of files in one movement. Most people use a tool such as 7-Zip to ensure that they can create Zip files easily and effectively.

Downloading 7-Zip is an uncomplicated process which should not take too long, usually a minute or two. You may be asked to select the program from your downloads bar, and then follow a few instructions, but in most cases the file will run through the program easily by itself. You should then be able to open up the file that you need, and start the program running.

Unlike most systems which are downloaded, the 7-Zip file is designed to function longside the traditional Office programs of a standard PC. This means that you can create a .zip file from your folder whenever you need to, without having to go into the 7-Zip program itself. This makes transferring folders to a .zip file much easier for the home PC user.

In order to use the 7-Zip program, you need to create a folder which has a number of files inside it. This will be your basic materials. When you have created the folder, you then need to select it by left clicking it, so it is shown in a light blue rectangle, and then right-click it. You will see a series of options, one of which will be called Send To. Hover over this column, and you will then be able to see a further series of options, including Compressed (Zipped) Folder. This is the option that you require. Right click onto this bar, and you should see your folder has now been sent to the bottom of the page, usually with a Zipped image replacing the old Folder icon.

Overall, 7-Zip is a functional and flexible file archiving system which will allow you to create zip files on your system. Anyone can use it, and it is one of the best zip-file creators available as a download.
