    • Check if you have FTM in your start menu.  If yes, you can click it to launch.
    • If you are using Internet Explorer, you may already have FTM installed on your machine automatically from your earlier visits to a Microsoft Program’s web site.  Follow the below steps to verify this and launch:
      • Open a command window (Start, Run and type cmd or command depending on version of Windows)
      • Change Directory to %SystemRoot%\Downloaded Program Files\
