Archives / Zip
It is often useful to be able to download a number of files simultaneously. The easiest way to do this is to
(1) Place all of the files in a folder.
(2) Archive (zip) the folder. On the Mac you can accomplish this by right-clicking on the folder icon and archiving.
(3) Establish a link to the zipped (archived) file. When anyone clicks on the link, they will receive the folder and all of the files in it. Their operating system will decompress (unzip) the files.
