  • What is a zipped (ZIP) file?

    A ZIP file format allows you to both compress and archive your files. Multiple or large files can be easily transferred as one file that contains a package of separate files or folders.

    How do I unzip files?

    Simply double-click on the zip file or right-click and select Extract All. The file will open as a new folder and contain one large file or multiple smaller files.

    What if I have an older version of Windows or Mac?

    If you have an older version of Mac or Windows operating software, you must download and install a special application that enables you to zip and unzip files.
