MacOSX has the ability to unpack zip files, and most Windows PCs these days have pre-installed software for unpacking zip files as well. Once the exercise files have been downloaded to your computer, we recommend placing them on your desktop, if you haven't done so already, for easy access. If you're a Windows user, your unpacking utility application may automatically unpack the files for you. If nothing happens right-click on the compressed file and choose extract all.

Once the exercise files have been expanded, you can delete the zip file or just keep it as a clean back up copy of the files you are working on. The instructor of the course you're watching will explain how to use the files you've downloaded.
