My first tottering steps in Eagle, documented before I come to regard them as routine, and cease to think of them as the very high obstacles I had to overcome to get to use it to advantage.
Step 1: Instal Eagle
The program has to be installed so that clicking on the start button will bring up a menu somewhat like the one below. Clicking on the icon labelled EAGLE 4.13 will start the program. If you have a different version, those digits might be different, of course.
I am sorry, I do not remember any details of installing it. Selecting the default choices offered during installation should be fine, because that is what I usually do.
Step 2: Eagle Control Panel
You see a list down the left edge of the window. Clicking on the + signs to the left of the text label will expand that entry. Click on the + next to the "Projects" line to expand it. I have made a new folder here for my projects, and that examples folder was supplied with the program.
The non-obvious thing is that here you have to right-click to bring up the menu to add items.
I am going to draw a diagram of my oscillator, so I shall add a schematic next.
Step 3: Make a New Project
Step 4: Rename New Project
Step 5: Renamed to "vhfosc"
Step 6: Make a New Schematic
Step 7: Add Components

Step 8: Finished Circuit
Step 9: Create New Board
Step 10: Completed Board
For guidance in getting to this step, go to this excellent tutorial: ( PCBtutorial https://www.instructables.com/id/EZ3WN1QUKYES9J5X48/ )
Make a PCB layout anyway, even if you intend to random wire up the circuit. It will show you the best position to place each component so that the wires make the least tangle - or the most, if you prefer that.
