    I'm unable to unzip fonts, etc. because all .zip files have become Adobe Reader by default for some reason.



    Any advice appreciated to change the default.



    Thanks in advance,

    Mellie

    Right-click on the file, select open with ..., choose Windows Explorer, check the Always open with this program box. From then on, all .zip files will be opened by Windows Explorer.

    Thank you for the info. Where would I find Windows Explorer when it is not listed under "Other Programs" to open with?

    Click the Browse button and go to C:\Windows and look for explorer.exe. That is the Windows Explorer program.
