STL file not showing up when I download it

Hello, I just got my printer in and am very excited to get printing with it. I am trying to download a few things on the slicer to get the hang of it but when I download something and save it to my computer and then go into the slicer nothing is there. Any tips for what I am doing incorrectly?

The files are likely zipped (compressed and combined into an archive combining several into one file). Locate the downloaded file and see if it has a .zip extension.

That was it! I didn't know you had to extract them out, thank you so much for the help!
