You use a zip utility to unzip it first. If you need a free one, try 7-zip, assuming you have Windows.

Windows 7 has native support for ZIP. Just double click the file and then DRAG the contents out to another folder/location and it will unzip. If you see a password popup it is password protected and youll need the password.

This does not work for my Win7.

What DOES work for me is to RIGHT click the Zip file, and from the menu that pops up choose Open with > Windows Explorer. Then the contents can be dragged-and-dropped into another folder of your choosing.

Depending on the origin of the Zip file, the contents may unZip into a folder with its name in green. This means that the folder and its contents are encrypted. There is an easy fix for that, though.

Does Windows still rely inordinately upon file extensions?

Yes. The only reason the Mac doesn't need extensions is because there is a separate, hidden "Resource Fork" file that performs the function served by extensions in Windows.

Yes, Windows ignores MIME types and defers to the extension.

I'm used to naming a file whatever I darn well please (particularly if it's just a working file) and handling it in the command line with the appropriate command without issue. The only time it seems to have ever mattered is if you have multi-volume archives, but that's another matter altogether.

Yes, I do, and all the intellectual property arguments that were going on at the time, too.

The case set the precedent for a lot of others going forward.
