How do I unzip files on a Mac?

ZIP files are one or more files compressed together to create a smaller file that downloads faster.

Most of our products and freebies will download as a zip file, which need to be unzipped before you can open them in your preferred software like Cricut Design Space or Silhouette Studio. On Windows, you do not need any third-party software to unzip a file.

If you have never used zipped files before, or are having trouble working with them, follow these steps to unzip files on a Mac computer:

Step 1: Once you've downloaded the ZIP file from Craft House SVG to your Mac, it will appear in your Downloads folder.

Step 2: To unzip the file you can either double click on the zip file,or right-click, go to ‘Open With’ and select "Archive"

Step 3: Your file will now be unzipped and show as a new folder without a zipper. Inside this new folder, you can find all of the file types included.
