    Hi

    Using the Windows 8.x command prompt, how do I decompress a zip file with the Microsoft commands?

    Zip support is in a DLL, not an executable so no, I don;t think there is. You have to install a program like 7-Zip or zip and unzip to do this.

    By chance, there is a Powershell command to do this?

    Thanks

    Yes, I believe Powershell can do this.

    How to create a zip archive with PowerShell?
