enter image description hereCheck your 'Dash home' by clicking on the first icon of your launcher(top left corner of your screen) and type the name of what you downloaded in the search bar.Then double click on it to run it.

'applications' is the only thing there where u said to click, there isn't a place to type anything. – henry gilley Nov 25 '11 at 3:02
Look a bit at the top.You would see a search bar - like the one you used to type in words in Google. Type the name of what you downloaded there. – all4naija Nov 25 '11 at 3:11
no search bar even when i pull up another folder. no search bar only a eye glass – henry gilley Nov 25 '11 at 3:15
that picture isn't remotely close to what mine looks like – henry gilley Nov 25 '11 at 3:21
Did your Dash home looks like the image I posted above? – all4naija Nov 25 '11 at 3:21
