Download, unzip/extract, and save Tubes using the built-in Extractor in Windows XP

What you will need for this tutorial:
Windows XP, PSP, and a Tube from Here

As you learn how to use PSP, you're going to want more tubes to work with than what came with your program.. you can find lots of tubes on the web, but you'll need to know how to download, unzip/extract, scan, and save them...be sure to check out the sites TOU (terms of use) before downloading from it...

Before you start downloading tubes, you need somewhere to put them, I prefer to download my zipped tubes to a folder on my desktop, named "Tubes to Unzip", so I can scan them for viruses before I unzip them, then as I unzip my tubes, I extract them into folders, located in My Documents... It's not wise to overload your tubes folder in PSP, as it will slow your program down, and cause problems... I use a pre-made folder that contains lots of empty sub folders, each is named for the different types of tubes you download, (you can rename the ones you don't use, or delete them)...if you would like to have one of these folders, you can download it from Here, and save it to your My Documents folder...
 


Create a Folder

Now we need to make a folder for our zipped tubes.. I prefer to save mine on my desktop, so right click on a empty area of your desktop
(the desktop is the 1st screen you see after you sign onto your computer)


 This box will open, click New
 

This box will drop down from the previous box, click Folder

Now you have a new folder on your desktop
 

You need to name your folder, something like Tubes to Unzip, by adding the name in the small box below the folder, it should already be highlighted, so don't click in the box, just start typing the name...
 

~ or ~

If you would rather have your zipped tubes folder in My Documents, click Start
 

Scroll up and click on My Documents

Once your Folder opens, click Make a new folder

If you don't have that option, click on Folders, to switch to correct view

A new folder will appear
 

You need to name your folder, something like My Zipped Tubes, by adding the name in the small box below the folder, it should already be highlighted, so don't click in the box, just start typing the name...

That's all there is to it.. you have just created a folder for your zipped tubes
