How you create your files depends on what exactly you want to do and on your preferred way of working.
- To compress existing files just as they are:
Select the files you want to cpmpress in Windows Explorer.
Right-click on the selected files. A context menu will appear.
From this menu, choose Alpha ZIP -> Compress... and type the name of the new file.
All files and folders you selected will be added.
To create an empty file that you can edit later:
Start Windows Explorer and go to the folder where you want to crate the new file.
Right-click on the background of this folder. a context menu will appear.
From this menu, choose New -> Alpha ZIP <type>.
For example. to create a CAB file, choose New Alpha ZIP CAB Archive.
A new empty file will be created. You can add files later, for example by dropping them on your new archive file.
From the main window:
Choose Create from this window. You will have to choose a name for the archive and the files to be included in it.
