How do I unzip files on a Windows PC?

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 Windows PC:

Step 1. When you first download the zip file from Craft House SVG to your computer, it will appear in your Downloads folder.

Step 2. To unzip the file, right-click on the zip file and select "Extract All..."

Step 4. A new folder without a zipper will be created. You can now access the files within the new unzipped folder.

You can now locate and open the files you wish to use in your design software.
