Before modifying files from a compressed folder or opening them in certain programs, you need to extract them from the compressed folder.
NOTE: If you are accessing this tutorial through the Linguistech Tool Box, clicking on the file you want to download will open a window asking you what you would like to do with the compressed (zipped) folder. Be sure that Open with is selected, and click OK. A new window will open, displaying the files contained within the compressed folder you have downloaded. These files are still compressed.
NOTE: If you are accessing this tutorial through the Linguistech Tool Box, click the Extract button (instead of Next and Finish) to complete the extraction process.
NOTE: You will notice that the files still appear within the compressed folder. The extraction process creates a copy of the files outside of the compressed folder. Remember that if you update these files and you would like to include the updated file in the compressed folder, it is up to you to copy it there.
