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.
Step 4 – Right Click File
Once your file is located, you’ll notice that it’s zipped. To unzip the file, right click the file and select “Extract All…”. This will prompt a window to pop up.
Step 5 – Extract Zipped Folder
In the window that pops up, you will have the option to change the location you want your file to be extracted to by clicking the “Browse” button. If you don’t change the file location it will simply stay in the current location the zipped file is located in. Press the “Extract” button.
Step 6 – View folder’s contents
Success! You now have access to your folder’s contents
