If you want to extract a .RAR file, and Iím guessing you are. Itís really easy. Just follow these steps:
  1. Go to the WinRAR website and go to the download page (or just click this link WinRAR download and support: Download).
  2. Then download the correct version for your operating system its more than likely to be the first one.
  3. After the download has finished open the exe. (Should be something like 'wrar420.exe').
  4. Then just go through the installation process.
  5. After the install has finished go and find the file on your computer that you have downloaded and want to extract.
  6. Then just right click the file and click 'Extract Here'.
  7. That will then quickly extract the file and the files should all be in a folder.
Thatís how you extract something using WinRAR. Although the next time you want to extract it you will only need to go from step 5 to step 7 as WinRAR is already installed.

Now to copy that file to a USB flash drive is very simple.

  1. Just right click the file that you have just extracted using WinRAR.
  2. Then click copy.
  3. Then go down to the Taskbar and click Start.
  4. Then click on My Computer.
  5. When in my computer click the USB drive.
  6. When the USB drive is open right click in any white space.
  7. Then click paste.
  8. It will then copy the file to the USB drive
Hope this is what you wanted and hope it helps.
