Kernel,small or complete dump files?

Please excuse ignorance on this.
What dump files are required to post with a bsod thread?
My computer is configured for "kernal memory dump".
I have 3 files in mini dump and I am not sure how to open
them.
I have read I can drag them to desktop?
This might be over my head ,not sure
Thanks in advanced
