{{FAQ_entry|question=How can I build a ZIM file by myself?|answer=To export articles from Wikipedia, please go to [http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Book this page]. For any other use case, this is unfortunately still too complicated. Please read [httpshttp://openzim.org/Build_your_ZIM_file this page] if you want to have some information.}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=How may I optimize the search engine index?|answer=Launch the script "./kiwix-compact" (only available on GNU/Linux) and this should reduce disk use by almost 50%}}
{{FAQ_entry|question=I can't copy Kiwix on my USB flash drive because the index file is too big.|answer=USB flash drives are often formated using the FAT32 filesystem which can't store files bigger than 4GB. We recommend to use NTFS which can deal with big files and is broadly supported.}}
 
{{FAQ_entry|question=How can I launch Kiwix with a specific article?|answer=You need to launch Kiwix from the command line using the -articleByUrl option. For example:<source lang="bash">kiwix.exe -articleByUrl "zim://A/foo.html" bar.zim</source>}}
