Zipping and Compressing Folders (Windows 10)

To create a zip folder, right Click your main folder and select Send To… -> Compressed (zipped) folder.

Right Click  

A compressed folder with a .zip extension has now been created.

NOTE: If a message from Windows asking to designate Compressed (zipped) Folders to handle all .zip files, select Yes.

To open a .zip folder just double click it with the left mouse button. It acts just like a normal windows folder.
