So you've just discovered a great new calendar, music player, or other program and you want to install it on your machine. Here's how to do it on both Windows and Mac OS X.
Installing a new program on Windows is pretty simple. Just head to the program's web site . Usually, this downloads an installer package, which you'll use to install the program itself.Find out where you saved the installer, and double-click on it. This will start the install wizard.
Every install wizard is a little different, but generally it just involves hitting "next" a number of times. That said, here are some things you want to watch out for:
Instal Type: You'll often be asked to perform a "typical" or a "custom" install (or some variation thereof). In pretty much every situation, a typical install should be just fine.
Install Location: By default, the installer will probably want to put your program inC:\Program Files\[NAME OF PROGRAM]. Again, the default location is fine.
