Creating a zip file is not that tricky. There are two methods to do that; Graphical and Command-line based, but if you want a much optimal file that is less in size and properly compressed then you must use the compression levels from (1-9)

To zip a file with compression you can use the following command -
$ zip -1 desktop.zip Desktop /* Fast compression & Less Optimal file */

you can input range from 1-9 where 1 is fast compression but less optimal file while value 9 signifies slower compression but much optimal file.

Check if this work for you, I have read a complete article on this on how to zip a folder in Linux.

If there are any problems, do reply and I will try solving them in this thread.

It's probably a good idea to disclose that. I'm *not* a mod, just a user. I suspect folks will be happier if you disclose it when you're affiliated with the links.
That’s thoughtful.. I will mention this next time whenever I contribute or write another article. Thanks
