What is a ZIP file?
A ZIP file is a compressed folder containing multiple files. It’s an easy way to transfer many files, or extra big files, to you. Download time depends on the size of the file and your internet connection speed. Please wait until the download of the ZIP file is completed.
How to open a ZIP file
Mac OS X, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 all have a pre-installed unzip feature. Once you’ve downloaded the ZIP file, click on it to view its contents. You won’t have to do anything special to un-zip the folder.
If you have Windows XP:
1. Right-click on the ZIP folder.
2. Click on “Extract all” from the panel that opens. The system will take you through a short extraction process via a step-by-step “wizard.”
3. The wizard will ask you to choose a destination. This is the folder where you want to keep the unzipped files.
4. Once the files are extracted from the ZIP folder, you can opt to see them all in their new destination.
If you’re using a PC and the original ZIP file was created by a Mac user, then an additional .ds file may be embedded within the ZIP file. In Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8, try following the steps for Windows XP, above.
If you have a Mac:
On a Mac, 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 you downloaded them to.
