    Templates are delivered in .ZIP format for fast downloading. You will need an unzipping tool to open this type of files.

    If you have Windows XP you don't need an unzipping program just right click the zip file and select extract files.

    Here are some programs you can use to unzip the files:

    7-zip - the best free unzip program (thanks to tappel for telling us about it)
    CamUnzip - Free easy and fast

    Winzip Free to try price: $29
    Winrar Free to try price: $29
    WinAce Free to try price: $29

    winzip is preferable to Windows XP's unzip, because it can zip and unzip a directory tree. XP may have improved since i bought mine (!), if so, apologies to them. XP's unzip used to put all the files in the root directory, which wrecks adresses to the stylesheet and all internal links.

    The free version of winzip is brilliant. :)

    1 Double-click the ZIP file. In Windows XP or newer, Mac OS X, and Ubuntu Linux[1], you can double-click the ZIP file and it will open in a new window. You can then copy the contents to another folder.

    OS X will create a new folder next to the ZIP file when you double-click it, but may not open it automatically.

    2 Right-click the ZIP file. In Windows and Linux, you can right-click the Zip file and select “Extract All…” or “Extract Here”. Extract All will allow you to set a path for the extracted folder to go, and Extract Here will uncompress the folder and leave it in the same location as the ZIP file.
