Installing a plug in

I have been using SketchUp pro for some time but have never installed additional plug-ins to those already in Sketch Up.
I have just downloaded the plug-in hobby version of Twilight Render to try it out.
The plug-in is on my desktop now, I’m not sure how I add it to the other Plug-Ins I already have, any advice would be helpful
thank you in advance

Most extensions and plugins are distributed as .rbz files. To install from a downloaded .rbz, open the SketchUp Extension Manager (in the Extensions menu in recent versions), click the button at the bottom of the window that says “Install Extension”, find and select your .rbz in the explorer/finder window that opens, and finally click the button to install it. Some installers will warn you that extensions will have access to your computer. If you got the .rbz from a reputable source such as SketchUp Extension Warehouse, SketchUcation, or a known vendor’s site, there is actually very little risk.
