The Windows download for KDE is not very obvious on the main KDE download page. It is not clear if this is deliberate, since it is still unstable, but the Windows installer for KDE is actually available on the KDE website. Download the .exe file and save it. Double-click it to run the installer, just as you would for any other Windows program.

"At this point you have only downloaded the small installation file and not the actual KDE packages. Therefore, select the first option in the installation window "Install from Internet". The next screen will present you with several options about how to install KDE. Unless you are a developer or have some specific reason to choose the other options, just choose "End User". This will install the binary packages for KDE, whereas the other options all require you to compile KDE from source."
