Question: Unable to expand "filename.zip" into "Downloads". (Error 2 - No such file or directory.)

This is the dialog I see after attempting to open a zip file by double-clicking on it.

I have been working with my new MacBook Air three days after 25 years on PC.

Thanks in advance for any help you may offer.

If all else fails, you might try downloading the (free) unarchiver for Mac. The program knows how to handle complicated ZIP files. (Apple native software can handle standard ZIP files well.) Here is a review of the product and a link to the download:

I have no financial interest in either the product or CNET. I have used the unarchiver and am satisfied with its results.
