    UnZipping Zip file with internal files with same name


    Hello - I am needing help in unzipping a zip file with multiple instances of same file name.

    For example, the file name xxx48197 exists 66 times in this particular zip file. When I attempt to extract, I get the warning message "The Destination as 66 files with same names" with options of Replace, skip, or Decide.

    How can I extract these files - with a result of xxx 48197 copy (1), xxx48197 copy(2) etc - like Windows does when copying a file that already exists?

    thanks!

    :)

  3. unzip files in windows 10

    I see multiple questions about unzipping files in windows 10 with the same exact response about opening the folder via 'windows icon +E' which I can use to open a folder but I get no option for unzipping other than I need to download Winzip. Is this functionality
    not included in windows 10 as it has been previously? Please don't just post the same copy and paste response that didn't work for quite a few people based on comments from your site.
    The steps below DO NOT WORK for windows 10. I've been using previous versions of windows for years and while this used to work it doesn't in your new version.

    • Locate the zipped folder that you want to unzip (extract) files or folders from.
    • Do one of the following:
      • To unzip a single file or folder, open the zipped folder, then drag the file or folder from the zipped folder to a new location.
      • To unzip all the contents of the zipped folder, press and hold (or right-click) the folder, select Extract All, and then follow the instructions.

    Can't unzip zipped files

    Hi alexalexmax! My name is Jordan and I will help you solve this.

    First of all, try right clicking the zip file that you are trying to unzip.

    When you right-click it, you should see an option to extract. Click extract files and it will prompt you to select a location to extract them to. Then, go to the folder you extracted the zip file to and you should have access to the files.

    Let me know if this works for you and I would be happy to help you more if this doesn't do the trick!

    - Jordan
