Issue: I don't know how to set up Freedom on my Windows computer.
1. Download and run the Freedom installer
To install Freedom on your Windows computer, download our Freedom installer from our Freedom downloads page, or you can use this direct link to the installer. After you've downloaded the Freedom installer, just double-click the installer to get it started. After that, you'll just need to follow the Freedom installer instructions:
2. Starting Freedom
After the installation is complete, Freedom will launch. You will then need to sign in with your Freedom account. After that you're all set! You can now launch your first Freedom session from https://freedom.to or from the butterfly task bar icon by clicking on "Start a Session".
3. Running Freedom
Note that Freedom runs from the notification area on the task bar. The taskbar is on bottom of your screen - look at the bottom right of your screen and click on the arrow pointing up and you should see the butterfly icon for the program. Click on the butterfly icon in the top menubar to manage Freedom.
Issue: I don't see the butterfly icon in my task bar.
To fix this, you may need to enable visibility of Freedom icon. To do this, right-click on your windows taskbar (the bar at the bottom), and select Settings/Properties -> Notification Area -> Freedom -> Show Icon and Notifications
