Using Win Zip 12.0 Revisited By Author

Jerry

Thank you for all responces to my earlier thread. There were several points
that I didn't state in my article which I thought were not necessary to
mention but might further complicate things. They are:

This is my first computer and runs Windows Vista Business.

When purchasing this computer I didn't know that some computer brands came
prelaoded with some form of Zip file form. I was also instructed to
purchase Win Zip software for online educational use. So, I didn't know.

Now that Win Zip 12.0 has been downloaded on this computer everything that
the default win zip program does meaning that the software that came
preloaded on my computer now is controlled by the Win Zip 12.0 program. Win
Zip 12.0 is the new default program in my use for compressed files on this
computer.

Lastly in my earlier article a responder suggested that I use the help
section to research the answer to this thread that I am reposting in
Discussion Group on how to use Help icon in Win Zip 12.0. I have tried
doing that before my original posting earlier today and many other times with
no luck. I have also attempted to implement hands on activity on what I
could find in the help section still with no luck .

So if at all possible could someone suggest a site or tutorial or walk me
through this Win Zip 12.0 Classic to use on these compressed files that I am
working on? Nothing totally advanced just Zipping Files and them saving
these Zipped files on to dest top. Thanks again.

Just for information ; there are plenty of free zip programs that do
the same job .

If you'd like to go back to XP's native zip capabilities, just uninstall
Winzip; then you'll have XP's capabilities back instead of Winzip.

There aren't a lot of them around for whatever reason, but you might get
something from:
http://www.winzip.com/faq.htm
at the winzip site. Look at the different areas, especially "Using
Winzip"

Here are a few links I picked up from Google; there are many more there
if you want to look for yourself:

http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~nog/t171/zipping/index.htm

http://www.autumnweb.com/Roxys/2Tutorials/4WinzipTutorial.html

http://www.greece.k12.ny.us/howto/winzip/

http://www.digitalparlor.org/pwenglish/winzip

Probably the best thing you can do are copy a few files to a test folder
and experiment with using Winzip. Do NOT overlook the files'
right-click context menu for using Winzip instead of using Winxip's
standard window. For the most part, the program explains almost
everything you need to do next as you complete each step.

If you'd like to go back to XP's native zip capabilities, just uninstall
Winzip; then you'll have XP's capabilities back instead of Winzip.

HTH,

Why would you think a Windows XP Microsoft group would be the best place to
ask questions about a non-Microsoft product you purchased and installed on
Windows Vista?

I've only got v9 of WinZip but if you click on Help, there's an item "Brief
Tutorial" in the drop-down. I'd imagine v12 would have something similar -
have you tried that? Or the FAQ? That aside, the best suggestion I have is
to type "winzip 12 tutorial" into a web search site (such as www.google.com)
and chase down a few promising-looking pages. But then, if you're having
such trouble following WinZip's built-in Help feature*, I'm not sure these
will be much more useful.

I always go for the Classic interface as opposed to the Wizard - but then
(and I don't mean this as condescendingly as it sounds) I know what I'm
doing! But rest assured - there ISN'T a lot to know, anyway! I'm sure once
you've got this sussed you'll be wondering why you were having any trouble
at all, it's as easy as pie once you're past the barrier of newness.

* It IS WinZip's Help you've been looking at, isn't it - not Windows'?
