I read the instructions on beepingcomputer.com about how to "create a zip folder. I then followed the direction and made an emty .zip folder.
The instruction thenn say to go to the file (in my case it's a >JPG that I am trying to make into a .zip...
and drag the .JPG to the newly created .zip folder.
It says ...then m jpg will be a .zip.
I dragged the .jpg (which was 202KB and pasted into the .ZIP folder.
It is now 172KB...but the file txtention still reads .jpg....
according to the instruction (om beepping computer ) the file ext of a compressed zip file should be .zip
So how do I know it's a zip file? or maybe it isn't a zip file.
I am trying to take a .jpg of my property tax bil ...which I scanned into my compuuter as a jpg...and ,ake it a .zip..so that I can send it along with my income taxes when I e-file.
