How to Install 7-Zip on Windows 10

hey guys in this video I'm going to show

you how you can download and install

7-zip on your Windows 10 operating

system so let's get started and let's

see how we can do it so first of all

open your favorite browser and search

for 7-zip and the first link which will

appear here will be from 7 - zip dot

o-r-g so just click on that link and

then once you are inside this website

you will directly see this Downloads

option so we have two Downloads option

here one is for 32-bit and second is for

64-bit so most probably you will be

having 64-bit operating system so I'm

going to choose the second one which is

for the 64-bit operating system which is

going to download this exe file and then

once they downloaded you just need to

click on this and I'm going to minimize

the browser and you can see it asked me

for this permission I will just say yes

and I'm going to just minimize the

browser and this will be the default

location where 7-zip will be installed

so if you don't have the good reason to

change it you just need to leave it as

default and I'm going to click install

which is going to install 7-zip on my

Windows operating system so it's that

easy to install 7-zip now let's see how

we can use 7-zip to just compress a file

so what I'm going to do is once again

I'm going to go to my PC and I'm going

to go to C Drive and I'm going to go to

where I have installed 7-zip which is

Program Files and then 7-zip right here

you just need to open 7z f m dot exe

file so I'm going to right click on this

file and I'm going to open it as

administrator and once this opens I will

just say yes for now and this is going

to open this 7z FM and in here you just

need to go to tools and then options and

in the options you just need to click

this +

button okay and then click apply and

then click ok and once you have done

this you can close this and also close

this one ok so let's create our file and

let's try to compress this file using

7-zip so I'm going to right click on my

desktop and I will create a new text

file let's say so new let's say I have

created this folder yeah and inside this

folder I will just create a new let's

say text file and I'm going to just name

it

some random name ok and let's say I want

to compress this so I'm going to right

click on this and you can see there is a

7-zip option so I'm going to just hover

one work this 7-zip option and it says

add to DD dot 7z DD is the name of my

directory or I can just add to DD dot

zip which is going to create a zip file

out of this directory so I'm going to

just make a zip file out of it and you

can see it has created a zip file for me

using 7-zip ok so in this way you can

download and install 7-zip on your

Windows 10 operating system and in this

way you can use it
