I have Windows 8, new at it. I went on www.svgcuts and downloaded a file. I can find it in my downloads. I can't get it to come up in my design room. I've been on YouTube and I think they use Apple. I sure would love to keep this Explore. Does anyone know where I can get step by step help?

I can't get past the page where you click on "Vector". When I click on the svg I want, a red dropdown appears and tells me this not a svg file.

You need to unzip (extract) your files first before you can use them. You will need a program on your computer such as WinZip in order to do this.

That's just wonderful, out more money. The Brother that's being shown on HSN today is looking better all the time. I've lost my Gypsy, with most of my cartridges on it, that's more money to repurchase. Now I have to have a $30,or more, to get free designs. By the way, we will have to pay $10.00 a month to use the Design Room. When does this company get their hands out of our pockets? The Explore is going back and I'm going back to CCR and my Expression.

You can unzip the files for free. Right click on the file and choose extract.

Martha, don't you need a software program to unzip files?

Most Windows PC have the unzip program already.... Like Martha said, right click on the zipped file and select Extract. Pay attention to where the extracted file will go to - you can choose a location if you want (desktop, etc), or let it go to the default setting.

Sorry you lost your Gypsy but I don't know how PC can be to blame for that.

I also don't understand why you have to pay $30 or more for free designs.

But I do know that Design Space is free to use. You can buy a subscription to the Cricut Image Library, which is $10 a month or $99 a year for access to all the non licensed images.

Yes, they do. Mine came with WinZip on it already. I would think the OP has something like it already on her computer.
