a window will come up that says File Download. It will have 2 check
circles on it. Make sure the Save This Program To Disk one is checked

if you are new to this you want to save it to somewhere that you can
easily find it right? Right! if by default it does not already say save
to desktop (if it does then just click Save and you are on your way)
If not then right beside the Save As window at the top is a little box
with a file and an arrow pointing up. Just keep clicking on that until
it says desktop in the little window. Then click on Save. It will now
When your file is finished downloading another little window will pop
up that says download complete just click OK.To Install your file find
it on your desktop if its a zip file you'll need to unzip it in order
to extract the exe.If its already an exe file double click and follow
