Its been a few months since I've installed it myself. I know that it needs to be extracted somewhere, but I need to remind myself of the location. A simple page similar to the page instructing users how to verify the gpg signature may be advantageous and improve the new user experience.


Between the subsection "Downloading" and "Running Tor for the first time" there may be an "Installation" section listed with basic instructions.

Thank you for the suggestion. Would you be able to try to start writing this yourself? You could submit a PR on the Tor Browser Manual repo on GitHub: https://github.com/torproject/manual
