Indeed.  But you still have to go through the various 
(pseudo-)folders.  I repeat my previous suggestion:

"...  download the .gz file, right-click on it and select 7-Zip /
Extract files ....  You will be presented with options, one of which
is "path mode".  Select "no pathnames".  OK this.  The .txt file will
then be available without more ado."

Quick View Plus is another option.  I find it invaluable.
