Not being able to preview banners is frustrating! This is why we have created this short guide to outline step by step how to unzip, open, and preview banners exported from Bannerwise, locally on a Windows machine. 

Below you’ll find a list of steps for you to follow in order to be able to preview HTML5 banner locally on windows. 

  1. After exporting, find the .zip file of the banner set you have created. It should be located on your disk. 
  2. Once you found the .zip file of the downloaded set, you can click on it to open and reveal the individual .zip files of the different formats.  
  3. Choose the format you would like to preview and right click on the .zip file and select “Extract”. 
  4. After extracting the .zip file you can click on the index.html in the extracted .zip to preview your banner. 


Please note that not doing this will result in you seeing a preview with missing elements! Follow the steps to make sure you got it right.

That’s it! In this way, you will be able to preview a banner locally on Windows without issues. Let us know if you need any help with this - we’re here for you on the support chat or through support@bannerwise.io!
