Downloading as a zip file?

When I download the market press icon & then go to upload it to my wordpress site it says it needs to be in .zip format but I'm not sure how to convert it?

    I would imagine that you're using a browser which automatically unzips files when they are downloaded. Are you using a Mac (i.e., OS X)? or a Windows-based PC? If the former, simply right-click on the folder and then click "Compress "[Folder Name]"", this will create a zip file which you can then upload.

    Alternatively, you could simply access your site via SFTP/FTP and then drag and drop the folder to 'install' it instead of using the built-in WordPress uploader.
