addon help

i’ve dowloaded a few addons from the Garrysmod.org site. i have inserted them in the correct addon folder within the gary’s mod folder and everything. for some reason when i open up the game, i cant find my new addons. Please Help!

Did you unzip them into the addons folder?

Also, you have to restart Gmod in order for the changes to take effect.

So, unzip the .zip files into the addons folder, and restart gmod.

i did unzip them. but how do u “restart” gmod?
