  1. Click on the search field in the top-right.
  2. Enter "Plex".
  3. Click on "Install".
  4. Wait for Plex to be installed, then launch it by clicking on the desktop icon.

That's all there is to it. Now you'll need to run through the initial Plex Media Server setup process, which should be a breeze if you've previously configured a Plex server.
