This post is aimed for users & clients who for some reason get their extensions as zip files without installers and need to manually plonk the zip folder somewhere and unzip the file there.

Where to plonk and unzip my extensions?
OS USER / ALL USERS HERE'S WHERE YOU NEED TO UNZIP THE EXTENSION ZIP FILE
Mac All Users /Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions
Mac User /Users/TREVOR/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions
You can press Command Shift G in Finder and paste ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CEP/extensions in window to get there
Windows All Users C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions
For Adobe CC2015 and before use C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\CEP\extensions
Windows User C:\Users\TREVOR\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\CEP\extensions
You can paste %appdata%\Adobe\CEP\extensions in the Windows Explorer bar to get there
NOTES (1) Replace TREVOR with your username if your username is not TREVOR
(2) If in doubt use the "All Users" folders
(3) Don't forget to Unzip the zip file!
(4) If the extension's not signed please see here how to make it usable.
