      Default Unzipping files

      What free unzipping program is for sure okay to use without fear of spam? I know there are quite a few out there and Phil is always afraid for me to download things that might cause a problem. I downloaded WinZip, that was to be free, but that turned out to be just for a trial. I would prefer to find a free one that others have used so I can be pretty sure it will be okay.

      I thought the program I was sold would take designs and make them ready to embroider, but it doesn't unzip them for me so I need another program to do that.

      I use 7-zip which is an open source unzipping/zipping program. You can read about it and dl it from here

      I couldn't get many designs without using a unzipping program.

      What is your operating system, nonnadonna? Windows has a built-in zipping/unzipping feature since (at least) XP. All that is required is to either right click on the file the select "Extract All" or double click on the file.
      Never give up, never surrender.

      Windows File Explorer will unzip your zipped files. It will also zip you files. it is a feature of Windows 8.1.

      I usually use jzip, (the easiest program I have found)

      but when that fails (rarely, but there have been a few times over the years), I use izarc
