Solved can I save zip files to specfic location?

Specs: Windows 7
Hi

I have a 7 zip file that I need to unzip but not save it to personal computers but a folder on the server.

Im trying to make is easy so just a click on a icon and Im thinking of a script or command that someone clicks on and asks what subfolder they want to open within the folder and then asks for password thats on the subfolder and unzips as a complete folder to a specific location.

The script or command will always be in the folder so people can just click on it to open files. If 7 zip is difficult I can use the zip function in windows .

Im very rusty on .DOS so any reply in easy english would help.

Folder is C:\Downloads and there will be zipped sub folders within of which I need to unzip etc. They need to unzip to R:\DOWNLOADS

Has anyone any ideas or other suggestions?

Yes, of course you can. Anywhere you like, just like a regular file.

Don't rely on scripts though, make the users do it manually or they will never learn how to use a computer.

Too many people rely on scripts, scripts just pander to those who don't want to learn how to do it for themselves. If you treat people like dimwits they'll never improve their knowledge.

I agree Phil but the reason I want it that way is because it’s confidential information l only wanted saved onto a network folder that is locked for certain user access only and not personal pc’s . All this data protection stuff now a days. If there is a way I would be greatly appreciated as I’m very rusty on dos.
