How to Install 7 Zip

 

Step 1:
Go to www.7-zip.org/download.html

The software will be formatted differently depending on the type of operating system you are running. If you are unsure of your operating system, the top option, “Windows 32�? should work just fine.

When you click on the “Download�? button it will download a file. Depending on your internet browser and computer settings, this may automatically execute or you may need to double click on the file.
