The easiest method is to open a terminal window, change directory to where the ZIP file is located and type:

unzip <filename>.zip

This will unzip the files into the current directory.

How to Zip and Unzip Files with Peazip?


Follow this steps.
1.PeaZip is a freeware cross-platform archive
manager that provides a single GUI for Open
Source technologies ( 7-Zip , FreeArc, PAQ,
UPX. ..) on Windows, Linux, and BSD. The file
manager allows both to select files and
folders to be archived as Zip files (or other
formats), and to select archives to be
unzipped. Alternatively, file selection can be
performed with PeaZip system's context
menu entries (not featured in PeaZip Portable
version) or simply dragging and dropping files
from / to the program.
2.Archive creation can be started dragging files
on the application, or with "Add" button in
program's tool bar. The archive creation
interface prompts by default creation of a Zip
file, but the file format can be customized, as
well as compression ratio (from faster to
better) and other miscellaneous options,
including encryption. PeaZip relies on
optimized Deflate algorithm for compressing
in Zip format, that usually compress 5-10%
better than standard Deflate but keeping
compatibility with other Zip utilities. 7Z
format gives better compression ratio, but is
slower than Zip. As quite unique feature for
archive management software, PeaZip
supports two factor authentication (password
plus key file), random password generation,
and features an integrated encrypted
password manager. "Advanced" tab features
more fine-grained options, "Console" tab
transform the task in a command line i.e. for
use in scripts or for study purpose,
"Schedule" tab allows to transform the
interactive task in a scheduled one.
3.Archive extraction can be started from system
context menu, or dragging compressed files
on the application, or with "Extract" button in
program's tool bar. It can handle multiple
archives even of mixed types at once, or
selective extraction of content from a single
archive. Over 170 types of archives are
supported: classic ZIP files and its variants,
new WinZip's ZIPX file format, RAR files, old
ACE archives, Microsoft's CAB and WIM files,
Apple's DMG packages, ISO and UDF disk
images, and many more.

How do I unzip downloaded file on Vista and copy it to floppy disk,via usb to floppy converter? Thank you. Cathy.


Windows Vista has a built-in function for unzipping files in Explorer. Just right-click the filename and select Unzip from the menu. But I never use the built-in Windows function, because it's incredibly slow and has limited functionality.

My favorite is 7-Zip, which you can download from http://www.7-zip.org/. It will extract files of .zip, .rar, and many other archival formats, and it can split large files into small sections to be stored on several floppies.

7-zip adds a line in the context (right-click) menu of Explorer for 7-zip>, so you can unzip files right from Explorer. Splitting files requires starting 7-zip and finding the file in it's own explorer-like interface. Right-click the filename, and select Split... A little dialog box appears asking what size chunks you want to split the file into. In my test just now it defaulted to 1.44M floppy disk-sized sections. You also choose the folder you want the new files to go to. The actual splitting operation, even on this old Win 2000 computer splitting a 3.6M file, was virtually instantaneous.

The program is free for personal or business use.
