Here is a quick example of how to unzip with WinZip:

  1. Double-click the WinZip file
  2. When WinZip opens, click Unzip to in the Actions pane

That's it. A folder window will open displaying the unzipped files and you can use them as you wish. Visit here for more details on how to Unzip files.

To unzip to a different folder, click the arrow to the right of the Unzip to button. XP users should click Extract. Before unzipping, you may want to click the Settings tab, click the Unzip Settings drop down menu, and turn options on or off in this list.

When working in an open Windows Explorer folder, the quickest way to extract from a WinZip file is to use the context menu; that is to right click on the WinZip file and choose one of the unzip options from the WinZip submenu.
