    Hello there, noob here ???

    So I found a few cool backgrounds, (namely from here http://www.sdtmods.com/index.php?topic=5119.0) but when I downloaded the file it came in a .rar format. Any idea how I can view this?

    Thanks in advance :)

    Try using 7zip. It's free and allows unzipping of most archive types.

    WinRAR is also another free program that works well.

    WinRAR is also the first result from Google.

    7zip is vague ??? But I think I have it figured out. Weird how just doing the standard "right click~open with" doesn't work.

    Also, I've used my free trial of WinRAR already :P Unless there is another "free WinRAR" that I don't know about?

    Rarzilla is another free tool to unpack .rar archives.

    Evaluation/trial copy of WinRAR never expires... Just keep using it after the expire date. Just like WinZip. Nobody ever bought it!

    I've had my trial version of WinRAR for over 3 years. I doubt its going to require me to pay any time soon.
