How do I open a zipped file?

Really part of a more general question. I'm organizing my course according to modules; one per unit. Within each module, I'm trying to upload my material from my hard drive. The material is already arranged in unit folders and sub-folders for students to access. I was told zipping a folder is one way to upload the material without having to choose single files for upload, but when I try to unzip the folder in Canvas, it asks me to download the material. Is there no way to unzip a folder in Canvas so I hand arrange individual files within units without having to upload each file, one at a time? Again, this is coming off a hard drive, not another LMS.

 

In short, I want to move this...

to here

but I want to unzip it IN CANVAS so I can get to these files for placement in my module.

Is there a way I can do that? Or something like it?

Thanks again!
