    Double click on it. OS X automatically unzips zipped files as it's built in.

    If it's a .zip file, you can just double-click on the file and it will decompress. Alternatively there are many third party applications you could use, such as The Unarchiver.

    Sometimes these zipped files are split into multiple zip files, and then you'll need Split&Concat to extract them.
