    I am fairly new to Mac OS. I downloaded this program and it comes as a zip file. I unzipped it but having a problem finding the file to install it. Is there an easier way or am I missing something? I am pretty familiar with this using windows but a little stuck here. Here is where I got it from. I didn't see it in the Mac App Store.

    All you have to do is unzip it. (double click on the zipped file). Then the .app file should be in your downloads folder. Then you can drag the app to your applications folder.

    As ECU mentioned, double clicking the .zip file will extract the .app file called "coconutBattery.app" into the Downloads folder.
    If your Downloads folder has a lot of items and you can't find it, maybe use Spotlight (CMD+SPACE) or search via Finder (CMD+F) or drag the .zip file into a folder with less items and you have a better overlook and extract it there.

    I got it to work. Thanks for the help. It was pretty easy. All I had to do is unzip it but I was looking for the file to run it, like in windoze. Thanks!
