Browse through the file system to a file of interest. If you think it's an archive, try to 'enter' inside by pressing 'Enter' on it. If GARbro recognizes format its contents will be displayed just like regular file system. Some archives are encrypted, so you will be asked for credentials or a supposed game title. If game is not listed among presented options then most likely archive could not be opened by current GARbro version.

Files could be extracted from archives by pressing 'F4', with all images and audio converted to common formats in the process, of course if game format itself is recognized.

When displaying file system contents GARbro assigns types to files based on their names extension (so it's not always correct). If types are misapplied, it could be changed by selecting files and assigning type manually via context menu 'Assign file type'.
