Right click file and select 'extract here' just like ANY other OS. In CLI. Use 'cd' to change to the directory which contains the file and run:

unzip filename.zip

Abderraxim (abderraxim) said : #2

unzip , or tar -xvf

If you only want to see what's in the zip file, you don't have to extract it. For a full listing, go to a command line and type:

unzip -v filename.zip

e.g.
jonathan@Odin:~$ unzip -v bricks.zip
Archive: bricks.zip
 Length Method Size Cmpr Date Time CRC-32 Name

The answer given did not work out. My problem still persists. I may be provided the thorough step wise procedure to unzip the file to have access into its contents. N.B. my o.s. is ubuntu 32 bit

What is the full name of the file (case sensitive) and where is it stored (again, case sensitive)

Thanks
