Working with zip files

Zip files and folders

Zip your files to help reduce memory space. You can zip a single file or folder, or zip multiple files or folders. You can also zip all of the files in a particular folder using the Zip All option.

Touch and hold a file or folder.
  • To zip a single file or folder, tap The Zip icon.
  • To zip multiple files or folders, tap the Select icon. Tap the files or folders you want to zip, then tap The Zip icon.

Unzip a file

You can unzip files, and also preview their contents. When you unzip a file, a folder is created with the same name as the zip file. The unzipped contents can be viewed in this folder.

  • To preview the contents of a zip file, tap the file.
  • To unzip a file, touch and hold a zip file. Tap The Unzip icon.
