Introduction: How to Install Libraries in the Arduino

This is just a mini instructable to describe the process of adding and using a library in Arduino. This is pretty much necessary information if you want to to more with your arduino than blink a LED.

Step 1: Find a Library

First, you need to find a library you want/need to use. A good place to look is here . The playground on arduino.cc has a bunch of user created libraries. I am using some of these in my other Project.

Step 2: Download That Library!

I chose the Morse library. Now click download and you should see the window in picture one.

Step 3: Now, Extract!

Just right click on the file you just downloaded and click extract.

Step 4: Find the Code

Look for the folder you just extracted. It should have a folder inside of it. Copy this over to the libraries folder in the Arduino Folder. The library is now installed! Good Job

    Thank you for your great post. I had created a video in Hindi/Urdu Language for how to add libraries in Arduino if any one from that language want to understand that procedure,

    i have a list of updated libraries on my website.  The folder also includes a readme and revisions file
