WinZip problems

  JACC 16:23 28 Jan 05

When i download something and try to open it , whatever i download opens in WinAmp and i can't use it . Can you please tell me how to get the downloads to open with WinZip and not WinAmp .Thank-you .

How are you trying to open it? Instead of double clicking right click and use Winzip shortcut menus to unzip, or Open With option and ensure you tick always use.

I can't open them atall , the WinAmp screen appears with the name of whatever i downloaded in the title bar (as if it was going to play music)It's as if WinAmp thinks it's WinZip.

OK, try this.

Open My Documents folder > Folder Options >
File Types Tab.

Scroll down to file extensions ZIP, highlight the row and click on Change button and select WinZip from program list.

Then check downloading again.
