    Try apps installer its free from the market. And yes all you have to do is change it to where .apk is at the end.

    One time I changed it from .zip to .apk during the "Save As" part.

    go to your command prompt:

    Start button --> Run --> cmd and hit enter
    go to the directory
    type "Rename xpandora.apk.zip xpandora.apk"

    that's assuming your using windows and you know a little about dos commands.

    windows doesn't use DOS like it used to back in windows 95, 98. windows now uses CLI (command line interface) and the command are different for CLI than DOS for the most part the majority of DOS commands wont work in CLI.
