  • How to Unzip Your Logo File On All Major Devices

    Posted on 16/09/2016

    Files can be fickle, and when they're large, they can be fickle beasts.

    When files are large they're usually compressed to save space and allow for faster downloading. Compressed files are also easier to send via email, among other things. When a file is compressed down, it's called “zipping" the file.

    So, if you have a file on your computer with the extension “.zip," it means that you have a compressed file.

    Now, while zipped files are great for storage and transfer purposes, they're basically impossible to use. That's because you have to “unzip" the zipped file. By unzipping the file you're essentially expanding it back to its original size, letting you use the file just like the normal files on your computer.

    In fact, often times a zipped file is actually a compressed group of files that are grouped together in a folder. So, if you have multiple logos, for example, you might receive them as a zipped file. And if you want to access and use your logos, you'll have to unzip the file to access all the logo variations.
