    I am new to all this and I have installed a few themes in the hopes of choosing one for my site. I do not know how to get all the files for the theme to complete my task. I am sure there is an easy fix; please enlighten me.

    they exist in the wp-content/themes/<themename> directory

    you can FTP to your website and just snag them that way, or am I missing what your asking?

    If you have installed them right, you will see them in the Admin > Appearance > Themes.

    You do not need to touch the files at all, just upload and activate different themes and get used to WordPress.

    If you are not aware of FTP do not worry about it for now, everything to get started can be done from the Admin Area.

    Select a theme you like and preview it, if it looks good then just activate it.

    The rest is just about adding content, pages and posts, adding widgets if you want to.

    Many themes will come with an Options Page, this would appear under appearance or in a new setting section, in the left Admin Column.

    Play with the default theme "Tewnty Ten" first add a few different widgets, pages and posts, look at the other options, background, header, menu etc:, all these are under Admin > Appearance, look at how these change your website.
