The files are all in a zipped folder. Extract the files to an easily accessible place on your computer.

In order to start a Kata, go to the Code-Katas folder. Copy the folder for the Kata you would like to complete onto a location on your desktop.

Next, open a Command Prompt window and navigate to the Kata folder using the cd command.

Make sure the Command Prompt is pointing at a folder that contains a .csproj file. This is necessary for the dotnet commands to work.
