How to Create a ZIP File
Winzip is a compression utility program that has been around since the early 1990s and allows the user to compress information into a single folder. This allows the user to send a single, minimized packet of information across email or the Internet, or to store packaged information on a drive. In all cases, the main function of this software is to compress data, therefore shrinking the information that needs to be stored.
