Hi, I was opening a zipped folder when I right clicked it and accidentally set notepad as the defualt program to open zipped folders. Now I did not buy a program, whatever came with windows just unzipped it. Well when I right click the zipped folder and then click open with and try to set the defualt program to open the zipped file, I don't see any programs to set as the defualt. Any ideas? Any help greatly appreciated.

Just download a free unzip like 7zip and install it. If it asks to associate itself with .zip and other compression extensions check yes. All done.
