How to Extract Zipped Folders

A common question we get when we send files to our clients is “How do I extract zipped folders?

Here is a step-by-step guide to help you!

Step 1 – Click WeTransfer Download Link

At times when receiving files from our team, you will be sent a download link within your email. This link will lead you to WeTransfer, a safe and secure site where you’ll be able to download a zipped file for your desired contents.

Step 2 – Download Contents

Once you’ve clicked on the download link, you will be brought to the WeTransfer page. Click on the “Download” button on this page and wait for its contents to finish downloading.

Keep in mind: transfers often expire after a set amount of time, so be sure to download the files once they are sent!

Step 3 – Locate Zipped File

Once your download is complete, locate where the zipped file has been saved to. If you’re finding it difficult to locate the file, usually you can find it in your Downloads folder.
