7-ZipRecently, I was asked by a co-worker for a way to unzip a folder which refused to decompress for her using the tool that is built into Windows. My go to application for unzipping, untaring, etc. is 7-zip, which can be downloaded here.
If you do not know if you should download the 32-bit or the 64-bit version of the application and you are using a Windows based computer, open the Control Panel and find the System application. In Windows 7+ this information will be displayed to the right of the "System type:" field. I know that computers running Windows XP do not list this information in the System application. If you are trying to install software on a computer running Windows XP, it's a fairly safe bet that you should go with the 32-bit version because aside from one wise acre who did so just to upset general rules of thumbs, if a computer is running Windows XP it's a 32-bit machine.
*Or, thumb, jump, USB, or whatever one is supposed to call those little portable hard drives that you can plug into a USB port, which are basically worthless in the age of cloud computing but I still have sentimental attachment to because they were cool (in my eyes at least) at one time.
