If you’re trying to extract everything in a compressed folder and don’t see theExtract all command, select the compressed folder, tap or click theHome tab, and tap or click Properties. On the General tab, next to Opens with, make sure it says File Explorer. If it doesn’t, tap or click Change and select File Explorer. If you still don’t see the Extract all command, the .zip file association in the registry might be damaged. Search the Windows support forum for info about applying a registry fix.

Double click the zip file.

When a zip file contains multiple items, the unzipped files will be stored in a folder that has the same name as the zip file. For example, if you unzip a file called, the files will be placed in a folder called Archive. This folder will be placed in the same folder as the file. If the folder already contains a folder called Archive, a number will be appended to the new folder, such as Archive 2.
