how do I add the zip file I downloaded to my text editor?

I downloaded the workspace so I put it on my own text editor to get more familiar with it. The text editor is vs code. I have tried the drag and drop method and file drop-down menu to open a new file and can't find it.

Howdy Casey,

You'll first need to unzip the file you've download. If you're on a Windows machine, try right-clicking the downloaded file and selecting "Extract" if you don't see that option, I would suggest downloading a third-party extraction tool like 7zip.

Once you've extracted(unzipped) the files you should then be able to load them into your text editor of choice.
