    I Can't Download Zip files


    I also cannot edit any of my files.

    I get messages saying I have to have Admin permissions. I am the Admin.

    I want to get a web page up and running but if I can't edit files and download zips I'm screwed.

    Anybody know how fix this? I hate to think I paid $800 for a computer just to check email.

    Thank, Brian

    :)

    zip file

    I'm trying to download a media recovery file for a Dell Laptop to my PC using windows 10, yet after downloading the zip file it won't open and says it's invalid. I followed all the instructions and file explorer is my default on zip. I've done it 3 times
    and still can't open. I moved it to the desktop, to the download file, and still nothing. Other zip files seem to open fine. If I can't open the file, I can't get my laptop up and going. I didn't receive a recovery disc when I purchased it and Dell only
    offers downloading a zip file. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I Can't Download Zip files

    Well I found work arounds for both of them. It's a pain in the ass but it gets me what I want.

    I'll ask again. Why can't I directly edit a file on my C drive? My searches show that this has been a problem (although some people claim it is a security feature) since Windows 7. Somebody on this forum must know.
