I have downloaded a .rar file and also downloaded winrar. How do i install the .exe file in the .rar file?
Sorry not having much luck with .rar files ;-(

Thank you

Right click on the .rar file and choose one of the three extract options dependant upon where you want the extracted files to be placed.

if it's a self-extrating file just double click on the .rar file. Otherwise right-click if you have set-up it correctly you'll have an option for WinRar, when you move the pointer to this you given some choices - "Extract Files" and "Extract Here". If you select "extract here" the contents are unzipped to the same location and then you'll (probably) have the .exe file.

If you've used WinZip then WinRAR is basically similar in use.
