Mac OS X Zip Expanding Utility

Firefox (and possibly other applications) may ask you what you want to do with .zip archives that you download from the Internet. If you want to expand them with Mac OS X (rather than StuffIt Expander), you may be unsure of which application actually does the job. You're looking for Archive Utility (in Leopard and later) or BOMArchiveHelper (in Tiger). In either case, the application is stored in Hard Drive/System/Library/Core Services/. Don't move it from there, though, or you'll confuse matters.

Thanks, Tonya. As one who is your father’s age, I have lived through several generations of digital divides. From college in 1968 when IBM 360 and Fortran IV was cutting edge technology to today’s world. Although I have a MBP that I use every day, I have not made the transition to the iPad (perhaps in the next year!). But your insight is right on target.
