    I'll be that kid to answer your question.
    Im guessing your running windows.

    Start>Search for Folder Options (If your on Windows XP then click run)>Views Tab>Uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types". Now locate your IPSW and right click and click rename. Delete the .zip part and put in .ipsw Now your done.

    If your on a mac then right click then get info. then delete the .zip part then put in .ipsw
