You can download Winzip on a trial basis for free. You get so many uses or a certain time limit, like 3 months or something. There are some other truly free softwares out there too. You can just google Zip programs. I think I used a program called 7Zip before. I haven't had to zip files very often so the free program worked for me.

I just right click on the file, choose "Send to" and then choose "Compressed (zipped) folder." I don't think we have any special program for zipping.

If you're using a PC with Windows XP, here are the instructions using the compression program that comes with XP (there should be something similar with Vista or W7--Mac, no idea):

To create a zipped compressed folder
1. Open My Computer.
2. Double-click a drive or folder.
3. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4. Type a name for the new folder, and then press ENTER.
Notes
• To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.
• You can also create a zipped compressed folder by right-clicking the desktop, pointing to New, and then clicking Compressed (zipped) Folder.
• You can identify compressed folders by the zipper on the folder icon.
• If you share compressed folders with users on other computer systems, you may want to limit the compressed folder names to eight characters with a .zip file name extension. (note: files I’ve downloaded are 30-40)


To add files to a zipped compressed folder
1. Open My Computer, and then locate the compressed folder.
2. Drag files to the compressed folder to compress them.
Notes
• To open My Computer, click Start, and then click My Computer.
• Double-click programs and files in compressed folders to open them.
• You can identify compressed folders by the zipper on the folder icon.
• If a program requires dynamic-link library files or data files to run, those files must first be extracted. For more information, click Related Topics.

Use your MS Help system and search for 'create compressed files' or 'unzip'. That's how I found the info above for XP.
