Zip files may be new to you. They are very useful for transferring large files and folders with multiple files. This zip file has a folder with two files inside. One is a powerpoint file, and one is an excerpt of an mp3 file containing part of the Backpack Boogie song.

Your computer may be set up for zip files already. Just downloading the file may result in a screen with choices that takes you through the process. If you are asked if you want to Open or Save, choose Save. Just pay attention to where your computer tells you the file is being saved. Usually, it will go in the My Documents folder.
