    Your simplest bet in this case will likely be to use a zip utility with a file browser, and ideally one that supports QuickLook, so you can preview individual files before extracting them.

    BetterZip: in Mac, you can’t natively preview zip files without uncompressing, Betterzip gives you that ability. - Source: Reddit / about 1 year ago
