I have purchased a download but cannot open the files? / Zip Files??
Many of MindingKids product downloads are provided as Zip Files. A Zip File is a compressed file which contains one or more files or folders. MindingKids likes to use Zip Files as they allow customers to download complete packs of organised information, keeping all related files and folders together.
Using a PC / laptop, to open a Zip File, you will require to have Zip Extract software installed. The majority of PCs and laptops already have a Zip Extract inbuilt, in which case, one saved to your PC / laptop, the Zip File can be opened by double clicking on it. Alternatively, you can right-click on the Zip File and select ‘extract all’ or ‘unzip’. The Zip File should then open to reveal the files and folders it contains. If the Zip File does not open then you may need to download Zip Extract software. There are several Zip Extracts available and many are free to download (e.g. WinZip, 7Zip).
On an iPad, tablet, or smart phone if you don’t already have one installed, search your app store for a zip extract (e.g. iZip, AndroZip), again many are free to download. Once installed, download and open your purchased files by selecting ‘open in’ and choose the zip extract app you have installed.
