When you download an archive file and extract the contents you’ll sometimes find it’s full of further archive files which contain the actual documents you need. Windows only lets you deal with one zip file at a time. If you’ve got hundreds to unzip it can take forever.
7-zip is a free application you can use to help power up your archive file handling. Extract multiple zip files to any location on your computer in one go, handle zip, rar, gzip and any other archive file format, lock and unlock zip files and much more.
