Third Party Modules

Hi Everyone,

I know this is most likely a basic question and you will roll your
eyes, but I am just starting out with Python (hobbyist) and I see many
tutorials on the web referring to the use of external modules.

However, when I locate them, they often come as a zipped folder with a
number of files.  How do I install them?  In addition, is there an
easy way to manage external modules? Some I see require additional
modules not included.

Where I am coming from is R, which has a point-and-click way of
getting packages not distributed with the version of the software, so
that is my point of reference.

Many thanks!
