Windows 7 extract from order for zip files

The extraction option isn't here for a zip file, I just downloaded and tried to open it. Also, when I tried to open the zip file, the default program to open a zip file is now Windows Photo. How can I reset the default zip files to open Windows Explorer, and how do I retrieve the extract function? The proposed solution on the forum for users of Vista is having this problem applies to WIndows 7? Thank you!

  • Windows 7: Windows Desktop Search 4, manipulation of ZIP files

    Hello team Windows,

    WDS 4.0 does not index the content of ZIP files (files in ZIP file). I can't find the name of the files in the ZIP file, or content.

    Isn't implemented yet or to I need to activate this option somewhere?

    Thank you

    Hello Wolfixx,

    Method 1.
    If you have problems of location of the files, folders, or other items on your computer, try using the search and indexing of troubleshooting to solve the problem. It ensures that the Windows Search service is running and checks if you have the correct permissions to search all the directories on your computer.
    See the article below for additional information and steps.
    Open the troubleshooter for search and indexing

    Method 2.
    Also I ask you to re - index files and then check. Follow the artticle below for the procedure.

  • Error: Windows backup could not create a zip file.

    I installed Windows 7 RC.  Installation went well, system runs quickly with no problem except when I try to perform a backup.  Seems to work at the end of the backup, and then fails with the error message «Windows backup to create a zip file» could not  «This could because the reader what is installed on Windows isn't a not enough space or it could be a temporary error.»  Make sure you have at least 400 MB of free space and try again' drive Windows is installed on has 163 GB of free space.  I tried several time backup on a separate internal drive > 300 GB of free space and a NAS drive (> 1.5 TB of free space with the same error message).

    Hi mhgreene,

    Thanks for posting "Preparation for Windows 7" community forum.

    Of after the information provided which happens usually not, is that the system tries to write to the partition recovery or diagnostic partition instead of the C:\.  You can confirm the backup partition is written is done to partition the drive, and you want the backup to reside.

    Let us know if this helps solve the problem or if assistance is needed.

  • Window display OpenExr playback Options for all files when generating thumbnails

    I use Bridge CC x 64. I work a lot with the OpenExr files. All of a sudden bridge appears this little window of playback options (regarding the Alpha channel) for all OpenExr files when generating thumbnails, which pretty much makes bridge unusable when you enter a folder with many pictures. Is there a way to disable this option? I've never known this behavior before, so it seems to me that it was introduced with a recent update. Any help on this is much appreciated. Google did not until now, anything useful.


    We published a new version of Adobe Bridge (CC 2015) on July 19, 2016. This update is available via the Adobe Creative Cloud application.

    We addressed the issue of "Open EXR reading Options Window" in this version. Please try the new version and check the number you have met.

    If you are not able to locate the bridge (CC 2015) on the creative cloud application, you will need to update application creative cloud and restart the machine.

  • By default Firefox for .zip files is empty.

    Hello. You may recognize my user name as is the guy is constantly plagued by problems with Firefox. The last blunder of the browser are:

    I downloaded a NZB file and went to ' open with: others ' and selected GetNZB. From this point, the selection box set automatically highlight GetNZB, although WinRar was the default program. It prevents me from using WinRar, but I had to take the time to choose, which previously was useless, so I found it extremely irritating. I decided to uninstall GetNZB to solve the problem.

    Guess what? There can be no. Now, the box is EMPTY by default. I got the add-on "save file in" so I removed it. It made no difference. I followed a tutorial to restore download actions. It made no difference. There is absolutely no sense whatever, and I should just be able to open with WinRar with a single click.

    I'm sorry if I have his rude, but years dumped on technology has taken its toll.

    Well, I apologize. I think that I thought about it. I had to remove mimeTypes.rdf and it seems to work now.

  • Windows does not open Zip files more

    I use Windows 7 Professional for a few years now and I've always been able to open the zipped files.  Suddenly now my pc does not have a program associated with the opening of the zip files.  Something has changed and I have no idea of what has changed.  I asked this question before a site, and he sent me to a site that was not Microsoft where I tried to download 7-zip which worked. But in the download zip 7 process it has also installed other applications that try to sell me unsolicited garbage.  I am appalled to see that Microsoft would send me to a site that attempted to install unsolicited applications.  Come on guys, just give me my windows version of WinZip go back so I can go about my business.   I have reviewed questions in this forum about this topic and it seems that it lasts for awhile now, surely someone at Microsoft noticed this problem and has a solution for this.  Can we download a fix for this.  Where in Windows is the program that opens zip files stored?

    How it's done, is described here:

  • cant open zipped files that my screen flashes crazy

    The operating system is vista. I can download zipped files, but as soon as I open the zipped file my screen becomes crazy and starts trying to open an Explorer after another. The only way I can stop it restarts my computer

    Hey Nico SJ,

    If you want to return the association by default .zip from Windows Explorer, take a look at the answer given in the thread below.
    Program changed default for .zip files.

    Alternatively, you can set your new third-party program that you use to open .zip as your default program for the extension .zip files. This will allow you just click Open and have this program open the file for you. The link below will provide additional information about the configuration of the default program associated with an extension of the .zip type:

Now there is no mouse so not menu Manager or task or the possibility of restart begins. He not only put there turned off or unplug, rest, restart in safe mode.

Well, I get the Internet Explorer of the e icon instead. That's when I knew I'm in big trouble. If you don't touch the file with the mouse, then try clicking on the arrow next to the e Internet Explorer in the toolbar, the frenzy of loading will begin and continue until power off.

  • File corrupted when decompressin names or you to browse zip files/folders

    I get filenames truncated in particular on most Japanese zip files trying to unzip them in Windows 8 (64-bit pro).

    • I tried other applications (7-zip, winrar, etc.)
    • I tried to make all the default program of programs at the above address for zip files
    • I tried to pass the locale (in Japanese of course) or use a version of applocale for windows 8.

    The same zipfiles can be extracted without any problem on my old XP system (using 7 - zip and applocale), then the files are possible extract properly.
    Observe also that it is not all the records that are affected, it is not necessarily all files in one archive. Goes the same for text in .txt files in the zip archive (some work, some don't).
    I have no problem with folders or files with other Japanese names on the computer and zip archives, I do with works of Japanese text.
    It is very irritating that this feature does not work with my new computer and I still use my old computer to unzip these files, then move them around to get them right.

    I had this same problem.  The issue is that some software (especially Japanese) international still don't format their strings in Unicode internally.

    So, when the file is saved, the file name is sent to the operating system by using JIS or Shift-JIS (in the case of the Japan).

    So that Windows 8 correctly recognized character sets not latins non - UTF, you have to tell which character set to use.

    Here's how Windows 8:

    Press START, type 'Control Panel' and then on enter.

    Select "Clock, language and region" and then "change location".

    This will open a dialog box, select the "administrative".

    Click on the button that says 'Change the system locale', then select the language to use when a program cannot (or not use Unicode).

    You need to restart your PC, but after that, you should be able to see Japanese names without problem.

    Hope that helps.
