Hi Terry,

assuming you are downloading the file to your downloads folder, once downloaded, right click the file and then "open with" and choose an app from available options. You can also click on "More apps". :)

Hello Wolfie,
Thank you for your response, unfortunately that does not work even if i choose WinRar it still pops up as notepad with all the unreadable stuff in it, it seems that somewhere sometime i selected NotePad as the download option and cannot get rid of it, dont want to reset win10 but may have to unless you can suggest another way to resolve this.
cheers

Which browser are you using?
If Edge, select the three dots, top right, and then settings. Select downloads, on the menu, left, and choose your required location.

If you are using another browser, I am sure a forum member can post the method.
But, Wolfie and I are assuming you mean the downloaded item opens with notepad (.?) In this case his instruction should work. Did you also select, after choosing Winrar, to tick the bottom option ( always.....)

We should have asked after your first post. I have no idea what app will open a “pkp” file, but the earlier, jpg, will open with MSPaint. Follow Wolfies instruction and in the others, choose MS paint

IF the files you have downloaded are suppose to work within your Flight Simulator, then it's possible that they would need to be moved to a container / directory within the Flight Simulator Program.

I would expect there would be some instructions somewhere as to where these files would need to be stored in order for you to use them within the application.

Perhaps the flight Simulator has a forum board that could point you in the right direction.

I have to agree, but i cannot get the file to a format that i can install into P3DV4 see attached, i will try the P3D forum, the only issue i have i have downloaded from Fly UK VA in the past this has only started lately, like i said i have screwed up something but do not know what.
