I use Winzip to compress files-it's fairly simple, but requires a review of
the help/Tutorial to use effectively.
I don't care for the XP method (Just try locating the compressed folder),
but it is simple and effective. My test (text) file went from 34kb to 4 kb.
My compressed folder is at:C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\SendTo.

This is from the XP help file:

"To add files to a zipped compressed folder
Open My Computer, and then locate the compressed folder.
Drag files to the compressed folder to compress them."
 Can I ask what is the favorite free program to zip and unzip files?
 I tried to compress and zip a file and I took a 2,200KB file and compressed
it to 2.2MB and zipped it.   now I think thats just a little backwards lol
  I have windows XP and the file is in "my documents" and when highlighting
it and left clicking it says " send to" then I click on "compressed zipped
folder"  and it gets bigger....Thanks for any help..........Bette
