How do I open a ZIP file?
A ZIP file is a compressed folder containing multiple files. It allows the seller to include multiple file in their resource. It also takes up less storage space than if the files were all separate due to the compression of the ZIP file.
It’s easy to open ZIP files on a Mac and PC.
- ON A PC right click on the ZIP folder.
- Choose “Extract All”.
- Choose a destination, where you want to keep the resource files.
- Click “Extract.”
- ON A MAC double-click the ZIP file, and it should extract automatically.
- If that doesn’t work, hold down the control key and click the ZIP file icon.
- Choose “Open With” and then select “Archive Utility.” The utility will extract the ZIP files and you can find them in the same folder where you downloaded them.
If you’re still having trouble opening a ZIP file there are a couple of free websites you can use to extract the files
- unzip-on line.com
