How do i make what i think is called a macro?

I have a question about what I think is a macro, but it could be something else. What I want to do is - every time I open any .zip file, I would like a specific text file to open as well. Is there a way to do this in Windows 7 Ult x64? Either with third party software or something built into the OS? Again, i'm not sure if this is a macro thing or something else. Any help on this topic would be grateful. Thank you guys

You're on the right track. A macro is usually associated with an Office program, eg, Word, to do repetitive tasks with a single click. Macros demystified: What they are and why to use them - Support - Office.com

Someone may be able to write a batch (.bat file) that can do it however.

I have asked for help from other gurus, some of which are code writers, give them some time and one should help you.

that would be awesome. I've heard the basics and think i understand how i would write it. But then to compile it to an .exe, i'm not understanding that yet. To the forums...
