How to extract a .zip file on a Mac

Topspin Platform Artist Support -

If you have purchased digital media that contains more than one file, you will download a .zip file that contains the entire package. Once the download is complete, you will find it in your default download location. If you aren't sure where your default download folder is, you can find help here.




Before you add files to your media player's library, you must first "extract" the files. If you double-click on the .zip package you have downloaded, Archive Utility should appear and automatically extract your files. If double-clicking does not work, please try the following:

1. Right-click on the .zip package, and select Open With > Archive Utility (default)



2. Archive Utility will appear on your screen and will show the progress of the extraction.



3. Once the files have been extracted, they will appear in a folder located in the same location as the original .zip file.


You can now play your media by adding the unzipped files to the media player of your choice.
