So, you have purchased and downloaded your new Digi Dame Party Shoppe party printables or scrapbooking digital items, but you have no idea what to do now, with the zipped folder/s.

To those who are unfamiliar with using zipped folders, it can be a bit intimidating. A zipped folder is "zipped up" with the files contained in it like any other folder, but it has been compressed to save space. A zipped folder can be identified by the zip graphic on the folder icon. A zipped folder must be unzipped or extracted before you can access the files contained within the folder. 

Here's how to open/unzip your zipped folders to access your files:

WINDOWS

1. Find the zipped folder in the destination that you saved it to on your computer.

2. Right-click on the folder, and choose Extract All...

3. A window will pop up, that asks you to choose your destination and extract files. It will show a chosen destination on your computer - you can stay with this destination (take note of where it is, so you can find the folder later) or click on Browse to choose another folder.

4. If you want to open your files for immediate use, you can check the box that says Show extracted files when complete.

5. Click on Extract. The files will be sent to the destination on your computer that you chose, and if you opted to show the files when complete, they will open immediately for you.

MAC

In MAC, hold down the control key and click the product file icon. Choose Open With and then select Archive Utility.

And that's it. Now you will be able to double-click on the extracted folder and open the files within.


I hope that helps to clear up the process of unzipping folders, and accessing your new Digi Dame party and scrapbooking purchases.
