Solved I have a problem with a tar.gz file

Specs: Win 8.1, 8gig
I have extracted to my Downloads folder a tar.gz file to this point:

The problem is that I have no idea how to execute the file so that it will install and run. I lost my previous Linux install due to a foul up on the drive and I have used it so infrequently since that I have forgotten what to do next.

Any and all help will be appreciated.
