    I have several ZIP files on my Surface and would like to know, what is a good app to unzip files?

    No, it can't. Only Windows 8.

    I tried double tapping it and it just says that it can't open it, that the file is invalid.

    I'm using explorer for zip and uncompress for rar. Tried your zip with the last app? Either it could be defective or has some new/unusal (winzip)options activated.

    Perhaps, I have a .ZIP file from Microsoft that contains PowerPoint slides that can't be unzipped. But I apologize for the generalization.
