can't open USGS file in correct projection

JSLJSL Global Mapper UserPosts: 397Trusted User
Now I'm trying to open a shapefile of North American geology from this site:  https://ngmdb.usgs.gov/gmna/#gmnaGeo
The gdb file in the Geospatial Files box doesn't work because it's unopenable by GM.  However, the shapefiles will open, but they're in some strange projection, and I can't change it even by using the Projection tool in Configuration.  This is the download link for the shapefiles:
https://ngmdb.usgs.gov/gmna/gis_files/gmna_shapefiles.zip

If anyone knows how to change it to Geographic (Latitude/Longitude) projection in WGS84 datum, it would be most appreciated!
