Extracting .zip Files

Opening a .zip file.

Your Project or Resource assignment may include a group of files using the .zip file format. The .zip file format combines and compresses files to simplify downloading files. When there are many files needed you'll download them all at once in a .zip folder. You'll need to extract those files to use them in your project. To extract the files in a zipped folder:

  1. On the project page, click the Resources link.

  2. Open your Downloads folder.

  3. Right-click the zipped folder file you just saved and choose Extract All… from the menu.

  4. Click the Extract button to extract the folder.

  5. Double click the extracted folder to open it.
