How to compress a folder in ZIP format in Windows 10

The amount of files with which we work on the computer, are more and more numerous and heavy, since the management of information online has become a daily process for most of us. That is why managing them correctly is important for the proper use of them..

 

 

Many of the files that we work with in Windows 10 can handle considerable sizes. For example, some music or audio files can weigh several gigs, affecting the space on the hard disk.

 

Luckily, Windows 10 integrates a function to compress a folder (where these files are housed) in zip format and thereby reduce their size and improve their management, and we will see how to do this without the need to download an extra program..
