Tutorial: How to open a .rar file
Hi, I’m Dave from boyinaband.com and I’m going to teach you how to open a .rar file.
A .rar file is a compressed version of other files, so they take up less space on your computer – making it really good for downloading big files, since it will take less time to download than an uncompressed file.
Let’s use one of my sample packs as an example. Right click the download link and save it.
Now, if you don’t already have winrar it’ll be an unrecognised file type. To get WinRAR, go to the link in the video description:
Then click “download now”. Wait a while, then click “Save file” on the prompt that appears.
When it’s downloaded, open the file you downloaded and install WinRAR by following the on-screen instructions.
Once it’s installed, look at the .rar file you downloaded earlier – it will be associated with WinRAR – double click it. Now the file will open in WinRAR. Click “Extract to” and select a folder to extract to and click ok.
Open the file you just extracted to and voila! There are all the files.
