Hi, Jill! I use the utility for unzipping files that comes with XP all the time, and it works very well. When you press Enter on the zipped file, you will be placed inside a list box that includes all of the files in your archive. You will want to press Alt-F to get to the File menu, and I believe that Extract All will be your first choice. If not, arrow down to find it, and press Enter. You'll be taken through a process for extracting your file(s). If you don't want to extract them to the suggested folder, which you probably won't, tab to the Browse button, and press Enter. On my PC, the default choice is My documents. It's been a while since I've saved it somewhere else, but I believe that you can hit the Backspace key from the folder list several times to get to the C drive, and you can extract it to any folder you want, or even to the C drive itself. Hope this helps! I've been validating a book for hours tonight, and my brain is mush, so let me know if you have any questions. <Smile> Good luck!
