Hello fleme007,

Thank you for your question. When you are installing a plugin in Joomla, you should leave it in the .zip format.

Here is our guide on how to install a Joomla plugin, also here is the Official Joomla guide on installing a plugin.

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,
