UnZip Me

  • Generic Company Place Holder UnZip Me

CamTech 2000's UnZip Me is a free utility that does exactly what it promises to do: It extracts zipped files, pops them into a folder, and then, if you like, opens an Explorer window so you can get to the directory they're in. I used UnZip Me to extract compressed program files, display fonts, and a large collection of new baby pictures that were e-mailed to me by a proud grandmother. All I had to do was open the program, browse to the item I wanted to unzip, click the button that says, "UnZip Files," and then click another button that says, "Open Directory."

You can't use UnZip Me to zip, or compress, files you're working with. It's only good for UNzipping things. But if all you need is a light-duty tool for extracting compressed files, UnZip Me should suit you fine.
