2. Double-click the .dmg file that you have downloaded and a new icon with a similar name will appear.

3. A Finder window may open automatically, if it doesn’t double-click the new icon and it will open the Finder window.

4. Copy (or drag n drop) the new icon (the one that appeared when you opened the dmg) to your applications directory.

That is how simple it is to install new software on a Mac computer. You may additionally create an icon for the dock.
