what distro are you running? If it's Ubuntu based, right click and open in archive manager (sometimes opens zip files and sometimes doesn't), then click the folder or file and click "extract to...," and select a directory you can find it in.

1) 'cd Desktop'
( You will have to change directory, because your
" start location " isn't Desktop, but /home/9769hall/ )

2) 'unzip file.zip' ( replace file.zip with actual name )

Or 'unzip Desktop/file.zip'
....
