    You must download or buy a chess GUI in order to install Stockfish. For example, download or to get started.

    Now that I've installed Stockfish for Windows and "The Tarrasch Ches GUI" what do I do next?

    Let's go through installing the engine in Tarrasch.

    An engine file should have the extension .exe. If your download has a .zip extension, you'll need to open the .zip file and copy the .exe to a desired location manually. Choose the new engine with Options -> Engine within Tarrasch and try it out.
