I am trying to unzip a picture file and it isn't working. The file is labeled as a zip file but the folder does't have a zipper on it. Is this new to Windows 10 or is this some other type of zip file? I have attached a screenshot below. The file was a download  from Google Photos.

I would allow file extensions. Does the file open. If not forget about Windows 10 zip and download and install 7zip. If 7zip cannot open it then the zip file is probably corrupt.

All of my zip files in windows 10 do not show the zipper on the file cover and none of them will unzip with either the win10 or the 7zip.  I can't believe that they are all corrupt. Any other ideas or how can I check the files to see if they are corrupt?

Was this computer upgraded from Windows 7 or 8 to Windows 10?

 

Edit: If you copy a zip file to a USB flash drive, can you open it on another computer?

It was upgraded from an 8.1. I have not tried to unzip from another computer, but not a bad idea.
