STEP 1: Decrypt a File

Best practice is to create a folder on your desktop titled “Today’s Work” that will save all encrypted files you download.  To decrypt a file:

  • Simply right click on the file
  • Select 7-zip
  • Click Extract files


An Extract box will then pop up, see below:

  • Click the small box directly to the right of the first dropdown to browse where to save your file. Find your “Today’s Work” folder to save the file in that location. 
  • Type in your password to view the file, and leave all other default setting in place. ( If you are not given a password, ask your project manager if there is a default password for your facility) 
  • Click OK
