When you click the link to a .zip file (which is a compressed collection of files) Windows would throw up a dialog that asks you what to do with it, and proposes to open it with the "Windows Explorer". You just confirm that by clicking "OK". You will then get to see the contents of the zip file, which in this case is a single folder 'SacChess'. Somewhere along the top of the window will be a button "Extract all files", which you click. That 'unzips' it, after asking where you want to put the files it extracts from the .zip amongst your own (also making a proposal for that, usually amongst your 'Documents'). You will then find the 'SacChess' folder amongst your own files, (it will automatically open a window where you see it), and can look inside it by double-clicking it, and will find the black Knight icon there that you can double-click to start the game. <p> So 5 or 6 mouse clicks should be enough to set you playing.
