Open CPN Chart loading

It's been a long time since I loaded charts in Open CPN, and even longer since I used WinZip. I would appreciate help, as I'm not that computer savvy.

Trying to D/L new charts to OPEN CPN:

Have D/L the charts, and have them in : Library / Documents / Navigation & Instruments / NOAA / chart numbers - 11322 - 11309. These 7 charts are not in a folder like TX-RNC-s, and they are still shown as individual numbered charts in ZIP Files.

I would like to unzip them, and create a TX-RNC-s folder.

Open CPN is not seeing them as they are.

When I select a chart and select WinZip, I am given a selection:
Extract to...
Extract to here...
Extract to folder
Encript
Create self Extractor (.Exe)
Configure

Any help would be appreciated.

Bob

Bob..

the version (and OS) you are using?
The latest OCPN 4.2 brings an integrated chart downloader plug-in. To consider?
