If you double-click, you can even see a preview of them. To open them outside Win.rar, you must extract them. Select all the files you want to outside the .rar file and hit "Extract." You have to choose a destination folder, in this example Images, but it could be the desktop if you wanted. Select Okay, and then just go to the folder - the files will already be there.
