File extensions

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!
