Hi Archer45, some of Mikem's files are PDFs others are RAR archive files (greater compression) you need some third party compression/Decompression software like "Winzip", I think Mike gives a link to the one he uses on his homepage. You want one that can handle ZIP and RAR files as a minimum, and preferably offers an extension to Windows Explorer. You'll then be able to look inside the files as if they were folders on your computer, and decompress them on opening.

I use WINRAR to unzip or unrar zip files. Used it for years.

Use the green ALTERNATIVE DOWNLOAD link lower on the page.
Hope it helps
Thanks
