Not sure why are you asking to transfer compressed files into text files...

Might have to do with the contents of the file though.

Yes, hamluis will need to know what files are in the zips.

 

Zip files are compressed archives, and can contain anything. There is no way they can be "transferred" to Notepad.

 

But if they contain documents, those files could be converted to a format that Notepad can handle.

Without knowing what format the individual document files are currently in, for example, if they are Microsoft Word .DOC or .DOCX files, they could be changed to .RTF files which Notepad can read, as long as there are no advanced formatting features used that the Rich Text format cannot duplicate.

 

Considering the effort involved, the benefit may not be worthwhile.
