Sometimes you got a rar…

Sometimes you find yourself listening to Katy Perry sing Roar. Okay, so to be honest those times are far and few between… except of course when it’s truth because you’ve just received a rar file from a digital purchase and you scratch your head and say, “How do I open this again?”

Don’t worry, breath, it’s not as bad as you think. If you’re on a Windows desktop and don’t know what a rar file extension is you may sit there clicking on the file getting frustrated. Again, set back, breath, queue up some Katy Perry and get your left shark action on.

If you don’t already have 7zip downloaded, head on over to 7zip’s site and download it. Once you’ve installed it (yes, this assumes that by downloading it you’re also going and installing it) you should then be able to open up rar files with a few taps of a mouse button (or trackpad or pointer). Where’s 7zip’s site? https://www.7-zip.org/

If you happen to be sporting a Linux desktop, you can grab the appropriate package for running an unrar command dependent on your Linux distribution. Handy page for finding the appropriate command yonder – https://linoxide.com/how-tos/how-to-extract-rar-files/

Good luck and back to getting your Roar on…
