How to "Zip" a Folder

After you have saved all of your application documents into your folder on your computer, you will then email the entire folder to the committee. This requires that you “zip” the folder so that it can be attached and sent via email..

To Zip the folder, generally you would right click the file, highlight ‘send to’ and click on ‘Compressed Zip Folder’
