How do I use 7-zip to decompress zip files

Help

  • I've downloaded and installed 7-zip.  I've downloaded a program I want to decompress and install and had hoped to use 7-zip to do it.  But the 7-zip help files don't seem to be written for someone like me who has no idea how to go about this.  Can someone just outline the simple basics?

     
    • Simply right-click on the respective file, then choose "Extract to..." (or whatever that is in your language if you use a localised version) and choose the folder where you want the file to be extracted. If that doesn't work, I tend to say that's due to a "bad installation".

      Hope that helps
