Hi, Janet, 

Your question is simple and I hope I will be able to help you with it. In order to open any kind of a zipped file, what you need to keep in mind is that you will always need a software such as the Winzip or WinRAR.

This is the process you will need to open the zipped folder.

Go to the website; and download the Winzip software.

Once you have the software in your computer, click 'Install' and follow the prompts to install it.

Use this process to open the zipped file or folder;

Double-click the zipped file or folder.

When the file opens, click on Unzip.

A folder will open showing the extracted files.

You can then extract to any specific folder you want.

Winzip Extract to Folder

You will then have your file ready, unless it is corrupted.

If you have a ZIP file that contains VMware files, you need to use WinZip, WinRAR, or 7-Zip to either open the file or unpack its contents. A ZIP file (.zip) is a compressed file or archive created by WinZip, a brand of file compressor or archiver. Before, this is the most popular format used when compressing a file.

But nowadays, other formats and file compressors emerged like WinRAR and 7-Zip. WinZip and WinRAR are two commercial software that offer free trial of their program. If you want to try WinZip, download the latest WinZip File Archiver. It supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.x, and Windows 10.

If you want to try WinRAR, you can download the latest free trial from WinRAR File Archiver. 7-Zip is also a file archiver but unlike the first two, 7-Zip is a free application. You can download the latest version from 7-Zip File Archiver. Once you installed one of these applications, you may now open and unpack the ZIP file you have.
