How Do You Extract FLT Files?

Extract an FLT file from a compressed file using WinRAR, a file archiver utility for Windows. You need a computer, WinRAR and a ZIP or RAR file that contains an FLT file to get started.

  1. Download WinRAR

    Open your Web browser, and navigate to the WinRAR website. You can download and use WinRAR for free, but it prompts you to purchase the program after 30 days.

  2. Install WinRAR

    Double-click the EXE file to start the installation process. Choose Custom Installation, and uncheck any third-party applications that come bundled with the program. Follow the on-screen instructions to finish installing WinRAR on your system.

  3. Locate the FLT file

    Open an Explorer window, and navigate to your FLT file. Check the file for a ZIP or RAR extension. If it has a 7zip extension, you can download 7zip and extract the FLT with that program.

  4. Extract the FLT file

    Right-click the compressed FLT file, and choose Open With. Navigate to the FLT file, and click Open. Select WinRAR from the list, or browse for the program in your Windows C: drive. Set WinRAR as the default program to open compressed files. You can also right-click the file, and select the option to extract the file to a folder.
