The ZIP file format is a common format that is used for compression of data and archiving. A ZIP file consists of one or more files which have been condensed in order to decrease the size of the file.

This format was initially devised by Phil Katz for PKZIP. Now on the other hand, several software services other than PKZIP are accessible to make, change or decompress ZIP files. Different types of software that are used to unzip files include WinZip, KGB Archiver, PicoZip, ALZip etc. Microsoft has also started including built in ZIP support at the minimal level in their current versions of the operating system. It can be found under the heading of 'compressed folders'.

A Zip file simply has to be unzipped using any of the numerous software that are freely available over the internet. After the files are decompressed they can be changed to any format that the user wishes.

A zip file is a compressed file containing 1 or more files of different type of files.. You have to open first with winzip or winrar or any other programs that is able to extract such zip file. After extracting the zip file, you can see then the type of files contained in the zipped file. Only then you can identify the real type of files.
