The UnZip Wizard software can easily unzip your ZIP archive files

The easy ZIP solution!

One of the most frequently asked questions that we receive from our visitors is "How do I unzip a .ZIP file?"  For those who did not grow up in the world of computers, BBS's (bulletin board systems) and MS-DOS prompts, a .ZIP file can be a mystery.  Our "What is this ZIP and UNZIP stuff?" Web page is one of the most popular pages at this site, much to our surprise.  It is therefore with much delight and satisfaction that we introduce the Wizard of UnZip!

The UnZip Wizard makes it easy to unzip your ZIP archive files!


What is a ZIP file?

A ZIP file is an archive file. An archive file is a collection of files gathered into one compressed file. To unzip (unarchive) these archive files, you need to use The Unzip Wizard.

Why would someone stuff a bunch of files into a single compressed file in the first place?  Compressed files download much faster from the Internet to your computer. There have been many formats for compressing files over the years, but the most common is PKZIP.

If you have downloaded a ZIP file and you need to unzip (unarchive) its contents, then The Unzip Wizard is all you need.

The Wizard knows his stuff, and he will be happy to step you through the unzipping process.  The friendly (and cute) Unzip Wizard interface will make you feel confident and secure that your ZIP files are being unarchived properly.  It's as easy as 1-2-3!  Simply...

1) Choose the ZIP file you wish to unzip

2) Select the internal files that you wish to extract

3) Choose a destination

That's it!  Presto! Like magic your ZIP files are unzipped!  This utility makes unzipping PKZIP files a snap!

The UnZip Wizard will help you unzip your ZIP archive files!


The Unzip Wizard software features:

  • Choose to unzip all files, or only some of the files stored in a ZIP file.
  • When viewing a list of ZIP files, you can sort them by name, directory, date, compressed or uncompressed size or by compression rate.
  • Warns you when you are overwriting existing files of the same name.
  • If the Wizard finds any README.TXT or INSTALL.EXE or SETUP.EXE files during the unzipping process, then he will politely ask you if you wish to view or run these files.  How thoughtful!

Although this program was originally intended for computer novices (nothing to be ashamed of here) we feel confident that computer geeks and busy individuals will likewise find The Unzip Wizard to be a time saver and a "must have" software utility.
