What is a zipped file? A zipped file is a collection of files compressed together into 1 single file using Winzip for instance (, inorder to keep related files in 1 together and mainly to compress them using some algorithms (make their file size as small as possible for faster downloads).

What is the file extension of a file? Each file in Windows has to have an extension (usually consisting of 3 unique characters), which gives the capability of Windows to associate the files of a common type of extension to a specific program; for instance .mp3 files are associated with opening in Winamp. File associations can be changed though, say you have many mp3 players and you want to use another player other than Winamp to listen to .mp3 files, then you can go to that specific's programs options/preferences and change file associations from there...
