    Here is a set of step-by-step instructions on how to install the Second Life Viewer once you have downloaded the Second Life Viewer installer, either through the registration process or from the downloads page:

    1. On most web browsers, the Second Life installer appears at the bottom of your browser window immediately after downloading. Screen Shot 2018-08-24 at 12.31.58 PM.png

    6. If Second Life does not launch automatically, or when you want to launch it at a later time, you can find and launch the Second Life Viewer in your Applications.

    7. Your first stop after logging in is Learning Island. Follow the signs and hints to find the exit portal (shown here). Along the way, you will learn how to move your avatar and look around.

    Once you go through the exit portal, you'll be transported to Social Island where you can meet other Second Life Residents.

    Note: If you ever need to download the installer again, you can always get the latest version of the Second Life Viewer installer from https://secondlife.com/support/downloads/.
