How do I open a zip file?

There are many educational resources that are now contained in a zip file.I struggled with zip files. Opening a zip file remained a mystery to me for a long time. Every time I tried it said my evaluation copy of WinRar was out of date and advised me to buy . (You can ignore and go straight to extract )
My first breakthrough came when I watched a short explanation of unzipping a template on the Barking College site.(this is useful if you are trying to access one of their many useful resources)
Then recently I watched a You Tube video and realised I didn't even need an Unzip programme as Windows XP has a build in extractor.
So now I know!
