unzipping files

Our shop has many large files available in zipped or compressed format.  The result is a  small file that downloads faster.  Sine multiple files can be stored in a zipped file, a single file can be downloaded then easily unzipped to download many files at once.

step 1:  find your .zip file

On a Windows PC, unzip support is built in.  When you see a .zip file you are going to see a file that looks like this . . .

 

 

 

step 2:  extract/unzip the file

After you have downloaded a .zip file, right click on the .zip file and choose “Extract All.” By default, files are extracted to the location as the original zipped file.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the “Select a Destination” window, type the name of the folder where you want the files saved to.  Click the check box next to “Show extracted files when complete” to ensure the contents of the download was successfully extracted.  Then click “Extract”.
