What is a RAR file extension?
RAR files are compressed files created by the WinRAR archiver. RAR files can be split into multi-volume archives when dealing with large file sets.
Like Zip files, these files need to be extracted.

How to open RAR files
1. Save the .rar file to the desktop. If your compressed file was
downloaded from a website, it may be saved in the Downloads folder
in your Documents or user directory.
2. Launch WinZip from your start menu or Desktop shortcut. Open the
compressed file by clicking File > Open. If your system has the
compressed file extension associated with WinZip program, just
double-click on the file.
3. Select all the files and folders inside the compressed file. Or multi-
select only the files or folders you want to open by holding the CTRL
key and left-clicking on them.
4. Click 1-click Unzip and choose Unzip to PC or Cloud in the WinZip
toolbar under the Unzip/Share tab.
5. Choose the destination folder to place the extracting files and click
"Unzip" button.
6. Find your extracted files in the destination folder.
