Your uncle should be able to select the files that he wants to send
(drag-select or ctrl/shift+left click), and then right click one and choose
"Send To > Compressed (zipped) folder". If he's using some other application
to create the zip file we may or may not be able to extract them. Your other
option is to get the same application he used to create the Zip. Also, make
sure you save the file on the local machine before trying to extract the
contents. That may cause issues otherwise.
