    Try to double click it, or it may already be unzipped.

    Use Minion. Hands down easiest way to install, remove, and update all add-ons. You can find it with Google.

    if you use 'extract here' it puts the addon folder in a folder..... you have to take the addon out of the extra folder.

    I'm going to third the Minion recommendation. It makes addon management almost painless.

    If you right click the zip file, you can choose to extract it to a location.. Standard it would be documents>elder scrolls online>Live or LiveEU (depending on world location)>Addons :smile: extracting the addon zip to that folder should fix it

    But the thing is there is no "extract here"

    Install Minion to handle your add on. It will save you a lot of time to update each add on later on.

    Directly from Minion you will also be able to search esoui.com site for new add ons to install and you don't need to have it running in back ground when have updated all your add ons after a new patch.

    thank you!!!

    what.... if you right click the zipfile you don't get 'extract here' as an option?

    what are you running, windows 3.1?

    download 7zip then - you need a zip-utility on your pc to have this option.

    download and install it anyway - it is a free tool and clean - and it is very useful as well when dealing with mods for TES games and fallout games and so on - you can as well compress data, which you do no longer need in immediate access into very compact 7zip files - 7zip is more compact than the original zip and this utility can do more than just zip - it can deal as well with rar files and other compression formats.
