  1. Download Tor browser

    The first step is to download and install the Tor browser. Tor is an anonymous browser that allows the users to access the Tor network, or the deep web. Go the Tor browser's download page by entering the URL "https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en" into a browser, and download it. Once downloaded, open the installation file and follow the setup process to install Tor browser on the computer.

  2. Shut down already open Internet software

    Before starting to browse the deep web using Tor, make sure that there are no other downloads in progress. If there are, cancel them or wait for them to finish before proceeding. Also, quit any torrent sharing software before using Tor. Torrent sharing software not only identifies you but also slows down the entire Tor network.

  3. Go to the Hidden Wiki page

    After making sure that all other Internet software is disabled, run the Tor browser and go to the Hidden Wiki page by typing "http://kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion/wiki/index.php/Main_Page" in the browser's address bar. This page contains a list of several deep web websites in a categorized view; select one and start surfing the deep web.
