Einsteinium Wallet - How to download and install.
This is a manual for those who struggles setting up the wallet on Windows. In this case we are using Windows 10. We started with the Edge browsers, but more comfortable might be another browser like Chrome since the Defender Smartscreen filter tries to block the download of the wallet.
Step 01: Einsteinium's official website
Head over the to (beautiful) website of Einsteinium

Finding the downloaded file in the Windows file-explorer.
Step 06: Locating the file we downloaded
Once the download is finished we open the file location. It's always good trying to keep the filename in mind for a while.
The file is already selected. Remember it's name.
Step 07: Check the location
Check also the location where the installation file is downloaded. That might come in handy in case you need it again.
Check where on what location the installation file is downloaded.
Step 8: Start the installation
DoubleClick on the installation file of the Einsteinium wallet. A window will pop up asking you if you want to store the data in the appdata folder or elsewhere. You can leave it like this. If ever you need to access the appdata folder: this is a hidden folder. See for more info in case you need it: Show hidden folders
I recommend just to click "OK".
Where to store the appdata?
Step 08a: The Windows firewall popup
Meanwhile, the Windows Firewall might pop up (Or another pop-up from another security software). In this case leave it as shown and click "OK".
Windows Firewall pop up. Click OK.
Step 09: The wallet is loading!
Yeah, the wallet is loading (or installing). A matter of waiting a few seconds.
The wallet is loading, nearly ready.
Step 10: Syncing progress
At the left you see that we are a few years behind. Don't worry, we don't have to wait that long. Though it can take a few hours to load all the transactions of the past.
Sync progress indicator on the left.
Step 11: receiving address
The most important step: The receiving address. A way to find it is by going to Files (the bar on top) and then click "receiving addresses".
Receiving addresses via File in the menu bar.
Step 12: How many blocks left to download?
When you hover with the mouse the most right-bottom icon (the two arrows in a circle) then you can see how many blocks more have to be downloaded.
How many blocks more?
Step 13: Debug Window

Click Help and then: Debug Window to see some options.
Step 14: Network traffic
Is there network traffic? Great!
