A problem with zip folders when copying, cutting and pasting!
Yes, the zip folder problem in Windows XP is an annoying feature of the Windows operating system.
But it can be solved easily, in the new Windows 11, 10, 8.1, 7 this problem has been eliminated.
In Win XP you can also fix this elegantly! Just open two explorers, in one the zip directory and in the other the target directory where the zip subfolder should be extracted.

The problem arises when working with a single folder (explorer) for the following reason: as soon as the zip folder (folder) is closed, the information from the clipboard also disappears. This problem can be elegantly avoided by using two explorer windows.
As said, it should be noted that the explorer with the zip folder will not be closed until the paste command has been executed.
If you have serious problems with MS Explorer in Windows, you can try the Quad Explorer Q-Dir. This is child's play here, because Q-Dir starts with 4 explorer windows (folders) by default.
This applies not only to the zip folders, but also to all other moving and copying actions.
