I have a folder in Matlab online, and I zipped it as a zip file. How can I download this zip file to my desktop?
I tried "save as", but doesn't work.
Many thanks!

I think there are two ways.
1. Select a zip file and click "Download" button.
The file will be downloaded in your desktop.
2. Install MATLAB Drive Connector on your desktop from here and synchronize your files between MATLAB Online and your desktop.
There is one more way.
3. Access MATLAB Drive online and download
Access to and select a file and click "Download". I have confirmed I could download a zip file whose file size is more than 200MB.

Yes, I've confirmed that download failed without a message when the file size was large (202MB in my case).
However, I could download it from MATLAB Drive online, so how about the option 3 of my updated answer?
Many thanks, I am now able to download the file via Matlab Drive Online (i.e. Option 3)!
Sounds good!
Downloading of a large file size occurs error 500 (internal server error) in MATLAB Online, so I've reported this issue to MathWorks. So far, we need to use Option 3 as a workaround.
