- If the resulting downloaded file is a compressed gzip archive (Gzip encoding) (should be a .gz file, or maybe push Ctrl+F and search for: gzip to make sure) :
- Use 7-zip or a program that reads these files to open the .gz archive And extract the file inside, giving it the appropriate file extension of what exactly the filename was originally. (viewable on the top line)
- There you have your file.
