    Problems unzipping downloaded files

    Advertisement



    OK, I'm a bit of a dork and cannot figure out how to unzip the software I download. When I go to open them I get the message that it doesn't recognize the file extension and then it asks if I want to search the internet for these extensions....I'm not sure if I've explained this very clearly, but I have downloaded a couple of programs and am unable to unzip them.

    Any help will be much appreciated!

    sassy - go to the place that you saved the zip folder

    once there, click file and choose extract all

    on windows xp (at least mine) it is actually a choice in the left frame

    when you open the file there should be a link to extract all files click that and it will create a whole new folder then try to download it. i had troble with that too

    What OS are you running. Is this on a PC, Mac, other computer. Most PC users use the built in feature in windows explorer or winzip. There are some other programs but I done know them.

    Hope this helps.
