    How do I open the contents of the contents of a gz file?


    I have a website backup in a gz file.

    In Windows 7, I could penetrate this file without, I'm pretty sure, any add-on software. I think 7's compressed file tools opened the .gz file fine, and then each subfolder and its contents and subfolders was navigable.

    In Windows 10, I had to install a zip utility - I picked 7zip - and that easily extracted the "contents" of the .gz file. But what I got was a 45 Mb file - not folder - just named with the contents of the archive. No extension. Just "yourarchive" (the name of the actual archive) as a file name. And 7zip can't do anything with this file. Even if I change the extension to zip.

    I think in Windows 7, the gz file would extract to a compressed folder (so name but no extension), that could then be explored.

    So my question is what do I do with this big file-not-folder (that is probably actually a folder) in Windows 10, so that I may explore it?

    :)

  2. Search Content of MHT files

    Hi David,

    Most probably, this is a problem with the search and indexing of your Windows 10 computer. For us to provide the best resolution possible, we would like to clarify the following:

    • Are you trying to search the content of MHT files using Cortana?
    • Have you tried searching it using the File Explorer?
    • Are you using a third-party app to search for the content of MHT files?

    As an initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you run the troubleshooter for search and indexing. To run the Search and Indexing troubleshooter, follow these steps:

    • Click the Start button and select the Settings
      icon.
    • Choose Update & Security from the list.
    • Click Troubleshoot in the left pane of the window.
    • Under Find and fix other problems.
    • Select Search and Indexing and click Run the troubleshooter.

    We'll keep an eye out for your response.

    RetailDemo Offline Content?


    Was cleaning up my 10162 install using cleanmgr. One option on the list was "RetailDemo Offline Content", it was 100MB. Not sure what this is, before I delete it. Suggestions?
