             Using and Testing Tor Browser for the first time 

Now you have successfully downloaded and installed the Tor Web Browser Bundle. You are no doubt anxious to begin using it. First, click on the "start" menu icon, the icon in the lower left of your screen with the windows logo. On the top right will be a listing that says "You", "Documents", "Pictures", "Music"... "You" of course will be replaced by your user name. Click on "You", the top most link. This will open up your main user folder.
Now, locate the folder called "Downloads" and double click on it.

Lastly, double click on the application: "Start Tor Browser"
