Using WinZip

Whilst working for Kodak in 2003, I made a suggestion that colleagues should use some form of compression software to reduce the file size of attachments. I was asked to write a short introduction for people new to WinZip to encourage them to install and use the software on their pcs and laptops. Later visits to Kodak showed that the installation of WinZip was quite widespread. I don't know if I can claim the credit for that.

It's meant as an introduction, so prints on a single side of A4, and it contains a couple of pictures to illustrate what's going on the desktop.
