A colleague has sent me an e-mail with a zip file.

Could you please advise me how I open it?

Many thanks

A zip file is compressed so sounds like you need winzip.

go to www.winzip.com and dl the evaluation version.

Hi Milton, to view your attachment using WinZip you can double click the file in the Zip archive & it will open on-the-fly ie still compressed but viewable, or you can 'extract' it to eg the desktop and it will uncompress to a normal file.
