    Photoviewer canít print zipped files on PC upgraded to Windows 7

    I have received so many zipped files through mail on my PC running on Windows 7. Even though the photoviewer does display the files, the printer appears to be grayed out on the app. It is possible to print the files if I unzip them and place them to ĎPicturesí folder. What should I do to print files directly through the app?

    Press the ‘Start’ button located at the bottom left part of the desktop to bring up the start menu. Go through that menu and select ‘Control Panel’ option. Once you can view the ‘Control Panel’ window, click on the ‘Appearance and Personalization’ icon visible on it. The next step required is to make a single click on ‘Folder Options’ option. Then, you need to press the ‘Search’ tab visible on the screen. You can then find “Include Compressed Files (ZIP .CAB...)” option along with a check box. Click on that check box until a tick mark appears on it. Press both ‘Apply’ and ‘OK’ buttons one after the other.

    Hi,

    Try dragging the photos out of the zip folder into a different folder or even onto the desktop...
    Then you should be able to print.
    If these photos are .jpg...zipping is probably not
    useful because the file size won't be reduced that much.
    Maybe you could just attach them without zipping.Use winrar software to unra files and then ude them for printing it will be more easy than others.
