Typically simply double clicking a .zip file with either XP version results in a Windows Explorer window displaying the contents of the archive. It definitely has limits, certain types of archived files are not accessible and you will need tools like Julie's recommendation. If double clicking a .zip file results in an error instead of the afore mentioned folder you could have a corrupted archive, or one that requires third-party utilities. -----Original Message----- From: bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:bksvol-discuss-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Julie Morales Sent: Saturday, July 17, 2004 6:25 PM To: bksvol-discuss@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Re: unzipping Hi, Jill. I also have Windows XP Home, but I don't use the ZIP utility it has, so know nothing about it. I don't know if you saw the discussions we had about this a while back, but Power Archiver is what I use, and it's free. If someone can't help you with the one in Windows XP, or if it doesn't work to your satisfaction, let me know and I'll send you the link to Power Archiver, if you're interested. Take care.
