zip file properties

Postby ScotAcree » Mon, Sep 27 2010, 9:39AM

What should properties be set to open zip files with?

My setting seem to have been changed and can not remember what I had my zip files set to.

"Compressed (zipped) Folders" works with Windows XP.

If you right click the zip folder and select "Open With" you should see "Compressed (zipped) Folders. It's a Windows tool.

When you select Open With it should give you the option to select "Choose Program...". From there you should be able to select what ever program you use for zipped files.

I am going to install a new zip program and start over.

Once I am able to send a zip file again,I am having problems saving a job.

Thanks for the help,
Scot
