    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Oh, I forgot to mention that if you stick with the .zip format, you can actually open the file in Windows without the need to use 7-zip since Windows Explorer now has built in zip support, you just have to use 7-zip to create the file.

    However, if you use the 7z format you can encrypt the file names too, so the names of the files can't be read.
