How to Convert 7Z to MP3

by Robert Schrader

Convert the contents of a file in 7-Zip or "7Z" format to MP3 to listen to a series of sound files someone has sent you in 7-Zip format. A software suite available as a free download online, 7-Zip allows you to compress a group of large files into a smaller package, which makes sending the files to others quicker and easier. After you receive a 7-Zip file, it's necessary to extract its contents to view them.

Step 1

Download and install 7Zip onto your computer if you haven't already done so. 7Zip is available free from the official 7Zip website, so don't click any third-party download link that requests payment in exchange for the file.

Step 2

Save the 7Zip file you want to open onto your computer's hard drive. Right-click on the file, then select "Extract" from the 7Zip submenu.

Step 3

Click the "..." icon, then choose a folder on your computer where you want the MP3 files to extract. Click "Extract," then wait until 7Zip informs you that the process is complete.

Navigate to the folder where you extracted the 7Zip file. Click the folder that bears the same name as your 7Zip file, where the extracted MP3 files now exists. Double-click any file to open it in Windows Media Player or your default media player.
