    First off, an F.Y.I.: a .rar file is an archive format, that is to say, it's basically a file type (A popular one too), designed for the purpose of storing many files at once. The main benefit to this is that

    You will need either Winrar or 7-Zip (I personally recommend 7-Zip as it supports a few other archive formats) to open them and extract the files.

    Hope this helps!
