How to zip a folder 📂

March 11, 2023

👋 Hey there, fellow student! So you’ve got a folder full of web project assignment files and you’re ready to submit them to the MUBSEP portal. But wait, there’s a catch – they need to be zipped before you can upload them. Don’t worry, it’s not as complicated as it sounds. Let’s get started!

📁 First things first, locate the folder on your computer that contains all the assignment files. It might be on your desktop, in your documents folder, or buried somewhere deep in your downloads. Once you’ve found it, give it a big thumbs up! 👍

🖱️ Now right-click on the folder and look for an option that says “Send to”. Hover over that and select “Compressed (zipped) folder”. In Windows 11, it is even more easier. Just right-click on the folder and look for an option that says Compress to ZIP file and you’re done. This is like putting your files in a tiny suitcase to make them easier to carry around. 🧳

💻 Wait a moment as your computer does some work to compress the folder. This might take a few seconds or a few minutes depending on how many files you have. You can take this opportunity to stretch your legs, grab a snack, or dance around like no one’s watching. 💃

🔍 Once your computer is done zipping up the folder, you should see a new file with a “.zip” extension in the same location as your original folder. You can give this new file a cool name, like “Awesome Project.zip” or “Web Dev Magic.zip”. Just don’t call it “Boring Files.zip”, because that’s just setting yourself up for disappointment. 😜

📤 Now it’s time to upload your newly zipped folder to the MUBSEP portal! Just navigate to the upload section and select the “Choose File” button. Find your zipped folder and click “Open”. Then sit back and watch as your assignment files make their way to the portal in style. 🚀

👏 Congratulations, you did it! You’ve successfully zipped up your folder and uploaded it to the MUBSEP portal. You’re well on your way to becoming a web dev wizard! 🧙‍♂️
