  1. Would anyone be so kind as to direct me through the process of opening files with a .tar.gz extension. Thank you.
  2. It's now April 9th and I have been working on this nearly every day since the last time I posted. I don't believe there is a way to open stuff in a .tar.gz format. Anyways, I am just keeping you all informed on my progress. Thanks again, Bob
  3. I have two SD Cards at 2.0GB. I can place them into my SD slot but then what must I do to see what is on the cards? Thank you.
  4. Let's start at the begining. Squid says to run 7Zip as "Administrator". How do I do that?
  5. Another 8 hrs in today on this job! I can get to where Squid's first post is saying to run as Administrator. I can not find any button to click for Administrator. On the right of his post is a window framed in green. It says Options at the top. Everything on my puter is as on the picture but I can click any button and nothing happens! Can a person really view anything in these type of files or is it a big hoax? Thank you, Bob Here is a file I've been trying to open ngdc_order_2018-03-08T18_27_45.085Z.tar.gz
  6. Well I am still at it. I downloaded 7-Zip and have 3 emails containing the info I want. The directions on how to untarr/decompress say to double click on the info I want to view. I did that but all I get is a small window which does not say much. I am double clicking while these 3 are still inside my mailbox. Can anyone help? Thank you, Bob
  7. slick333, thanks for the link. I had tried it before but I gave it another try. I still can't get anything to work! Thank you to everyone for your help, Bob
  8. Squid, I checked the sites you listed and have already tried them all. I can only assume I am an idiot for not having the brains to accomplish this simple task. I will not bother you again and thanks for the advice, Bob
  9. Well, from the last time I posted is 10 days and I've been working about 5-6 hours a day but still failed to figure anything out! Below are some I would like to have opened. Most were .tar.gz however I did manage to get them into .kmz format. On a side note, here is what I've been attempting to download. https://maps.ngdc.noaa.gov/viewers/northeast_ocm/ I need the area off Ocean City, Md, north to just above the De state line and south to just above the Va. state line. When you go to this site, please click out of everything and then click onto BAG Color Shaded Relief Imagery. Also these will be in .tar.gz format and will also need to be uncompressed. Thank you. 7z1801.exe bag_bathymetry.kmz multibeam_mosaic_hillshade.kmz ngdc_order_2018-02-15T14_10_00.349Z (1).tar.gz
  10. I have Windows 10 in my puter. In File Explorer I have numerous images saved which appear as "thumb nails". Some have multiple images joined together as a single image. (I was putting pieces of a Bathymetry map together so they appear as one map), however, now I cannot drag any of the images around, within the same window, to "fine tune" my map. Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas as to how I can accomplish this. Thanking everyone in advance.
  11. When I did as you advised, I get a small window that says "cannot open archieve".
  12. I am not very computer literate so please excuse me if this is in the wrong forum or is simply stupid. I have been attempting to download a file that is in .tar.gz format. I have tried about 10 programs but cannot get past the first step but have read that it can be done in Windows 10 which is what my computer has. Would some one be so kind as to explain what I have to do. Thank you.
