You might end up downloading what looks like a .doc file. Really, it's a .zip file in disguise! :O So, you'll need to change the .doc extension to .zip.

FOR WINDOWS USERS
1.) Open the directory where the file is downloaded.
2.) Go to Tools > Folder Options.
3.) Go to the View tab.
4.) Scroll down until you find the 'Hide extensions for known file types' check box and uncheck it.
5.) Change the extension of your .exe or .doc or what have you to .zip or whatever the actual extension is supposed to be.
6.) Enjoy!

FOR WINDOWS 7 USERS
1.) Go to Control Panel.
2.) Select Appearance and Personalization.
3.) Select Folder Options.
4.) Select Show File Extensions.
5.) Change the extension of your .exe or .doc or what have you to .zip or whatever the actual extension is supposed to be.
6.) Enjoy!

FOR MAC USERS
1.) Open the directory where the file is downloaded.
2.) Change the extension of your .exe or .doc or what have you to .zip or whatever the actual extension is supposed to be.
3.) A prompt will come up asking if you'd like to use the new extension or keep the old one. Click to use the new one.
4.) Enjoy!

You can actually do it directly when you download in Windows. When the "Save As" dialog box pops up, you can go down to the "Save As Type" field at the very bottom, and select "All Files". Then, just type ".zip" after the file name in the field directly above that, and it will save as a .zip when you download.

This helps soo much! My problem with the description wasn't that I didn't understand it, but all my programs and software is not in English and I don't know all the translations for the folder names used- good that I have Windows :) Thank you!
