You should really take the time to read the manual.

https://www.scirra.com/manual/33/saving-sharing-and-collaborating

Single-file projects (.capx files)

Projects saved to a single file are often more convenient for small projects. There is only one file to send, upload or share. However, they save and load more slowly due to Construct 2 having to pack and unpack the project from one file. They also make collaboration more difficult than if the project is saved as a folder.

.capx files are simply a ZIP of a project folder. You can rename a .capx file to .zip and see the project files.

@SadisticDentist Seriously?

Okay, I suggest before you do anything... read the manual
Do the example games, don't just look at it or copy and paste. I want you to recreate it line by line.
tutorial one
tutorial two

All new folks say, but that isn't what I want to build. Understand that they cover the basics, and the basics is what you use to create any game. for example in the first one shows you how to use text and global variables i.e score

The example from lordshiva1948 requires latest stable release and a external plugin - so it isn't going to help you. Do the tuts I linked to, they have all the basics, and the answer to your question(s).
Roll up your sleeves and learn the tool (construct2) it is a fantastic program that rewards those who spend time learning how to use it.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
