How to Unzip Files
In this how-to, you'll learn how to unzip files.
- Locate your downloaded .zip file.
- Click to select the .zip file. (Mac users can simply double-click the folder to unzip/extract the contents.)
- Choose Extract All from the Compressed Folder Tools > Extract ribbon tab. (You can also right-click the folder and choose Extract All.) If you don't see an option to extract all, then you probably need to download a program for unzipping files. We recommend 7-Zip, which is free. Here are instructions for downloading it .
- Click the Browse button to choose a location. Remember to create a folder with a meaningful name that describes your course.
- Select the location and click Select Folder.
- Click Extract.
- The files will extract and you will see the progress. The time it takes to extract depends on how big the class files are. Please be patient.
