Thanks, Benny, but nope. Nope. I tried with default unzipper (Windows
8) and 7-zip. Both produce error messages. This isn't a big problem
for me, but it just would be nice to be able to extract the files.

This one probably could use a warning or info in the help files.
Thanks to your clue, I found a workaround.
Gramps apparently ignores mime types (or default browser) when it comes
to paths containing "file:///" and which use forward slashes.
So local path:
is opened in Microsoft's choice of browser, but
DOES open in the default browser.
So, now I just need to try to find a way to revise the urls in the local
paths. I think if I tried to use the Media Manager regex tool
for substitution, I'd get into trouble. Many of the paths are not
local so unless I can somehow use a conditional, I'd end up zapping
the non-local paths of their forward slashes.
Is there a way I can open a file and perform some substitutions?
