You can right click on the file in the explorer window then click rename, When you rename the file make sure that you remember to put the ".zip" extension at the end. If you can't see the extension you will have to change your view to "details", possibly even set the "show all files" property of the folder in order to see the extention. It is also possible that the file association has become damaged or corrupt in which case you will have to edit the "open with" property of the file type that you are trying to open.
I hope this helps,
Good Luck

Jeremy, you asked essentially the same question on the 4th. Two people asked for more information. You ignored them and reposted. Try being a little more respectful of the people who are trying to help you.

Also, try coming up with a more descriptive subject than 'files'.

This is a file association problem but to get you the correct answer I will need to know what Operating system you are using.
