ZIP is a common file format that compresses files for easier storage and transfer. Because a lot of my mystery packs come with videos and PDF files, I will usually place all of the files within a compressed ZIP folder. Sometimes, you may encounter issues when trying to open PDF files within these compressed folders. This tutorial will guide you on how to extract files from a ZIP folder to help resolve these issues.
For Windows Users:
2. Extract Files: Right-click on the ZIP folder. In the drop-down menu that appears, click on 'Extract All...'.
3. Choose Extraction Destination: A dialog box will appear. Here, you can select the location where you want the extracted files to be saved. If you don't specify a location, the files will be extracted to the same location as the original ZIP folder.
4. Extract: Click on 'Extract' to start the extraction process.
5. Access Extracted Files: Once the extraction process is complete, navigate to the location you specified earlier. You should see your PDF files there, ready to be opened without any issues. Select the folder without the zipper. See sample below.
For macOS Users:
And there you have it! By extracting your PDF files from the compressed ZIP folder, you should be able to open them without any issues. If you're still having trouble, the problem might lie with the PDF files themselves and not the ZIP folder. In that case, if it one my teaching resources that you are having the problem with, please reach out to me with an order number or copy of the receipt at email@example.com for further assistance.
Remember, always keep your software updated to ensure compatibility and security when opening files. Happy unzipping!
