Full Answer

iTunes is a software program that plays and manages music, videos, and audiobooks from a computer. It also provides access to the iTunes store where music, e-books and audiobooks, movies, games and apps can be purchased. It is also used to connect to other Apple products, such as iPhone and iPod, for the purpose of transferring files and apps.

The first step in installing iTunes is to download it at the Apple website which provides the latest version of iTunes for free. The website will list the current requirements for installation, such as the amount of disk space, the computer's operating system and processing speed. An Internet connection, preferably high-speed DSL service, is also required.

Once iTunes is downloaded, installation should begin immediately. When prompted to save the file, save it in a location on the computer to find it easily. If the.exe file does not open automatically, open it from its location on the computer. Once the.exe executable file is opened, the software should begin to install. If the process is interrupted, it may need to be repeated by again clicking on the.exe file. If problems persist during or after installation, iTunes may need to be uninstalled with all associated files removed and then downloaded again from the Apple website.
