How to Download itch.io Games In 2020 | Where To Start?

In this tutorial, I’ll be showing you how to download Itch.io games for Windows in 2020. This is an updated video that covers how to get started with playing itch.io games since the previous one didn’t cover .rar files. It takes a bit of time to learn how to use the program 7-zip to extract, but once you do you will be able to play games in no time.

** Make sure to check out the FAQ in Google Docs if you have a question that may have been answered! **

If you need help then I will try my best in the comment section.

    Question:
    “7-zip unsupported command error”
    Answer:
    Go to your game file and right-click on it. Open With > Choose another app > more apps. Checkmark “Always use this app to open .rar files” then keep scrolling down until you see “Look for another app on this PC”. Click on it and a new window will come up. Find where your 7-zip installation folder is located so for me it is in my program files on my C: Drive where I installed it, select 7zFM and then click open.

    Go back to your downloaded folder which should have the 7z logo over it now, allowing you to open it without an error.

    Question:
    My Game is not saving as “Save as” – How do I fix it?

    Answer:
    If you are using Google Chrome and a Windows Explorer doesn’t pop up when clicking a Download link, it should still download to whatever your location is set. But if you want to fix this then left-click the three dots at the top right of your browser. Go to your settings > Advanced > Turn “Ask where to save each file before

    Question:
    I have the error “Location is not available”. How do I fix this?

    Answer:
    If you come across this error then you probably put a period at the end of the last word when doing the extracting process.

    To correct this, open up your games 7-zip folder, then next to the text box, select the folder with an up green arrow. After you found the folder you name, right-click on it and remove the period at the end of the word. This will spawn a second folder and now you can delete them both and redo the extracting process.
