Compressing files on ME

On my ME `help topics` I am told that if I go to MY COMPUTER and double click on the drive on which I want to compress a file, I should then go to the FILE menu, point to NEW, and then click COMPRESSED FOLDER. Unfortunately there is no such choice avaiable.
Can somebody help please?

Windows help is a contradiction in terms..

The Compressed Folders feature is not installed by default
click Control Panel

Double-click Add/Remove Programs.

Click the Windows Setup tab.

Double-click System Tools.

Click to select Compressed Folders.

Click OK.

You can then create compressed folder..

right click inside the folder where you want to create a compressed folder (in a blank space) and move the mouse to "new" on the popup menu another menu should appear on which should be "compressed folder". when you have created and named this folder simply drag the files you want into it.

spikeychris.

I have XP., and have tried to follow your steps for ME but cannot see a "Set up" tab.

Is XP different from ME in this area please?

To all who want to zip or unzip files and/or folders.

Go to the PCA download page and under Utilities, File Management download PowerDesk 5.0 Free utility much better than Windows Explorer. Will zip and unzip files and folders to wherever you want.
