  • What is a zipped (ZIP) file? How do I unzip?

    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.

    We recommend:

    • WinZip for PC users
    • Stuffit Expander for Mac users (applicable to Mac, PC and Linux)

    Once you have downloaded and installed your zip application, you will be able to download and open ZIP (.zip) files.
