Albit I found it strange at first, I don't see why we should make 
Windows a special case. Both .el and .info files are gzipped when 
running 'make install', but this transparent when you visit them.
So there is no need to bother.

Try: M-x find-library , then files and the file visited is files.el.gz 
in clear.
