How to Unzip Files on Android Phone (Using Note 10 + Android Version 10)

Here is a guide on how to unzip zip files on an Android Phone. I am using a Samsung Note 10 + that is running Android Version 10. I can’t promise that this will work with other Android phones, or different software versions - but it should work, and if it does, the steps may vary just a bit.

  1. Go to the My Files app on your Android device.

  1. Tap on Downloads (blue arrow pointing down at line)

  1. Tap on the zip file

  1. Check the SVG
  2. Click extract.

Please note - when you are in the files to select your SVG, it may appear as a red icon with mountains or a grey circle with an exclamation point - go ahead and choose it, that is your SVG, and once it loads into your design program, you will be able to see it.

This is so helpful. I’m thinking of getting the kids an android device, so this will be a great resource.
