Hi there 

Of course as was mentioned you could just put the PC cursor over the file and 
press cmd o, cmd down arrow, or with the vo cursor (vo+space bar) or any other 
variety of the opening commands that apple has, but I wonder if you are talking 
about a secure zip file. I don't know about the ones from the organization that 
you are talking about, but for example the ones from book share are secure and 
they require your book share password to expand them. In this case the what I 
just said would not work. 

In my case I open them with the terminal.

unzip "file name"

The "file name" also includes the path of the file. It will unzip it in the 
directory of focus. It will ask you for your password. I am certainly willing 
te to explain it in more depth. I don't really know what your understanding of 
the command line is.

I am quite sure there are other ways to do this and people will most certainly 
find them here, but this is just how I do it, and it comes with the mac without 
having to add anything.
