How to Open .gz File in Windows

I had to open a .gz file in windows which I download from unix machine. A .gz file is a compressed file, .gz is the file extension for gzip files (GNU zip, an open source file compression program) similar to zip files.

These files(.gz) can be opened in windows by using 7-Zip or using variety of third party software like Corel WinZip, PicoZip, WinRAR, WinACE.

7Zip is a free alternative to WinZip and WinRar.
