WinZip problems

  JACC 16:23 28 Jan 2005

When i download something and try to open it , whatever i download opens in WinAmp and i can't use it . Can you please tell me how to get the downloads to open with WinZip and not WinAmp .Thank-you .

How are you trying to open it? Instead of double clicking right click and use Winzip shortcut menus to unzip, or Open With option and ensure you tick always use.

I can't open them atall , the WinAmp screen appears with the name of whatever i downloaded in the title bar (as if it was going to play music)It's as if WinAmp thinks it's WinZip.

OK, try this.

Open My Documents folder > Folder Options >
File Types Tab.

Scroll down to file extensions ZIP, highlight the row and click on Change button and select WinZip from program list.

Then check downloading again.

Scroll to Zip

Then Change the setting for ZIP files to open with WinZip
