Installing Git files

Hello,
I have a question about installing the git file here:
https://github.com/vishr/local-history/
The instructions say that I should use command palette to install the software but for some reason cntrl + shift + p opens my printing instead of my command palette in Windows 10. Is there an easy way to install it or do I have to find command palette somewhere in windows? I downloaded the zip but there is no way to install it from there. Please help.
Thanks

Have to write no. (as to easy.)

1. I read the section under "current snapshot of master" and it is non-trivial. That is you would have to know where you installed Sublime Text (for Windows.)

The instructions look like something a programmer could love.

What do you mean there is no way to install it from there?

2. "Via Package Control:" or ctrl+shift-p.
This again is something you don't see well documented but you install Sublime Text and then Package control. ctril-shift-p would be a command while you are running Sublime Text.

If you pressed ctrl+shift-p on Windows or a browser, something else happens.

Navigate to git-lfs.github.com and click Download.

Tip: For more information about alternative ways to install Git LFS for Windows, see this Getting started guide.

On your computer, locate the downloaded file.

Double click on the file called git-lfs-windows-1.X.X.exe, where 1.X.X is replaced with the Git LFS version you downloaded. When you open this file Windows will run a setup wizard to install Git LFS.

Open Git Bash.

Verify that the installation was successful:

$ git lfs install
> Git LFS initialized.
If you don't see a message indicating that git lfs install was successful, please contact GitHub Support or GitHub Premium Support. Be sure to include the name of your operating system.
