View Full Version : Paint 4 .zip files

Resently I put a zip file onto a friends computer and instead of a zip icon appearing a paint icon was there.
When I double clicked on the icon it said that Paint could not open this file.
They have winzip installed, how can I make winzip run this file?????

To associate zip files with WinZip, open WinZip, click options toolbar, configuration, system tab and check box to associate WinZip with archives.

If that doesn't work, hold down shift and right click on the zip file, select open with..., select WinZip and check the box to always use this program with this type of file.

Check the name of the file: it should be 'my_compressed_file.zip'.

Paint should NOT try to open a ZIP file.
