How Do I Make A Zip Archive On A Mac?


How do I make a zip file on a MacBook Pro?

You can easily make a zip archive of any file or folder in Mac OS X. Highlight the file or folder that you want to compress and then go to File -> Compress (file name). You can also right-click or control-click on the file and the resulting menu will have a compress option. The resulting compressed file will be in the Zip format (.zip).
