How to Zip a File - Adding multiple documents into one zipped folder!

Easy to follow steps for PC (Windows 10):

I was looking to put multiple files into one folder (it's easier to send in an email without going over the maximum GB limit)

Step 1: Open "File Explorer" and decide on the files, pictures, or folders you want to place in a compressed zip folder.

Step 2
: While holding the "ctrl" control button, click on the files you want to group together. 
Step 3: (2 options) Right click on the selected files (image above) then hover over "Send to" and then find the "Compressed (zipped) folder" on the second pop up window. Then click it and continue to Step 4.

(*You may also do this same step another way if it's easier. Once you have your files selected from Step 2, find the Share tab at the top left corner of the toolbar click it and then click Zip.)

Step 4: It will ask you to rename the folder. It uses the file you used to right click on but you can change it to any title you desire. Just type in the highlighted box and hit enter. 
When you finish, double click and look inside to make sure you have selected the correct files inside your new compressed "zipped" folder. If you want to add more files, just click on them and simply drag them into your new folder! 

Done, now you're all set! Easy peasy, lemon squeezy. I hope this helps make life easier.
