what program do i use to open a zipped file?

5

i purchased and downloaded files from an embroidery design website with the PES format. i cant seem to open them, what program should i use?

From your descriiption that's not a zipped file. Embroidery designs are commonly saved as pes files. If the file ends with the extension .pes then that's what it is. Some Wordperfect programs can open it depending on what prog the designer used. More up to date progs that they most likely used are:

Designer's Gallery StudioPlus
Embird Suite
Buzz Tools BuzzXplore or BuzzEdit
S & S Computing SewWhat!
Threadsmith Format Foundry

Great programs that will easily handle pes files. Good Luck !

Forgot to say that BuzzEdit has a 21 day free trial so if it's just this one time you need to open it go for it. If you have further use for it compare pricing with the others I named.

If you have windows xp, or mac osx 10 it will unzip itself. If you have an older version of computer, use winzip

winzip.com

Windows XP or later should turn the .zip file into a folder that you can open and extract the contents. If not, the two main programs to do that would be either Winzip or Winrar.
If you are using a Mac, you should download Stuffit Expander.

Edit: I didn't see that you were using the .pes format. This is a Brother formatting that can be opened by doubleclicking the icon if you have a program on your computer that reads .pes files.
