Opening an epub file is easy!

An epub file is essentially just a compressed zip file with HTML and XML files inside.

  1. To open your epub you right-click on the file, select “Rename”, and change the extension from .epub to .zip. then hit “Enter” to save the name change.
  2. Now you have successfully converted your epub file into a .zip folder.
  3. Right-click the .zip folder name and click “Extract All.” Choose where you want to save the files and click “OK.”
  4. Now you have a folder that you can open to access your ebook content directly!
  5. You will need to use a text editor (Like NotePad or Sigil) to make edits to your ebook HTML files.

For mac users, the process is a bit more technical and requires some scripts. However, you can use THIS TOOL to unpackage your files easily!
