Default Path too long

Hoping someone can help me. When I unzip a folder, I have My Pictures open to my OScrap folder. In there I have folders for each designer. I click open the designer folder and create a new folder with the name of the kit on it. I then slide the unzipped folder over to the new kit folder I created. Sometimes I get a message that one item (an element, paper, etc) cannot be copied because the path is too long. I usually let this go because I lose only one or two elements. But in a kit I just tried to download, I lost 8 elements and all the papers because the paths were too long to copy.
Has anyone encountered this problem, and if so, is there a way around it??? Appreciate any help I can get.

I have

I use windows explorer.
I download the zips and place them in the folder i want
And when i look at the folder in explorer, i can see what is in it.
You can drag folders or elements separately to an unzipped folder.
Sometimes it is folders in folders in folders, that make a name very long.

so when the zip is f.i.

Designerslongname/kitalsolongname/elements/brushes/png/flowerbrush.png
I just copy the flowerbrush.png to the kit directly to the kit folder without the subfolders..

Hope this makes sense,

i will see if i can make a screenshot later today, at the laptop.

I use winrar to unzip folders. I have maps for every designer, i always make new maps for a new kit and give it that kit name and then i slide or cut and past them into the new folder i created.

THANK YOU so much!!! I use 7-Zip but what I was doing was unzipping the folder first and then moving the unzipped folder over to My Pictures into the designer's folder. That's when I would get hung up on paths being too long. After reading what Madi does, even though I use Chrome, I tried moving the still zipped folder over to the designer's folder first, and THEN unzipping it!! It worked!!! No problem with the too long paths!!!!

HUGGING you all for helping me with this!!!!
