How To Download, Install, Extract, and Compress Files For Free Using 7zip


So, you downloaded a ton of custom contents (CCs) and shit's not working in your game? Maybe it's a zipped file and you forgot or don't know how to unzip it.  
 
There's a free tool you can use to unzip files or even compress files to help save space on your hard drive. I use 7zip because it's easy to use and reliable.

 
Not sure how to use it?  
 
Here's how:
 
HOW TO DOWNLOAD 7ZIP
 
Visit https://www.7-zip.org/ and download 7zip. Choose the 32-bit if your computer is old or has less than 4GB RAM, or choose 64 bit for the more recent computers with at least 4GB RAM or more. 
 
After downloading, follow these steps:
 
1) Double-click on the downloaded file to initiate installation;
2) The default location is C, but you can change it to where you want to install it;
3) Click on install and wait until it is done installing;
 

HOW TO ZIP/COMPRESS A FILE / FOLDER

1) Right-click on the file/folder you want to compress;
2) Hover your mouse to 7zip and choose either "add to" or "compress to____ and email";
3) A new folder with the same title will be created. That folder will be the compressed one.;
4) Hover over the compressed file and notice the folder size to be smaller than the original folder;
5) You can delete the original folder to save space on your hard drive;

HOW TO UNZIP/EXTRACT A ZIPPED/COMPRESSED FILE/FOLDER

1) Right-click on the file/folder you want to unzip/extract;
2) Hover your mouse on 7zip and choose "Extract Files";
3) Click "OK" and wait for it to finish;
4) A new folder with the same name is created and that is the unzipped/extracted folder.
