No software opens up. You just have to plug it in and start Makey Makeying!

What?  Nothing happens when I plug it in. Isn't it supposed to do something @ first?

Nope. When you plug it in go to a sample project. Then follow instructions to do your first project.

Ok, go here https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/105493780/. Hook your Makey Makey up to money on the space. Ground yourself using the earth slots. Make sure it is plugged in and touch the quarter. Does anything happen?

Ok, you know the alligator clips that came with it? Plug your Makey Makey in and then clip one end of an alligator clip to the space circles. Then one end to a dime. Then get another one and stretch it out to the earth holes. Hold the metal piece for the earth with the program up, and tap the dime.

Ok, I did that, it worked but it said that there should be a program that will open when you plug the Makey Makey in

It says that there might be a program that opens. It said if so just close out. I have a mac and nothing opens up. btw the white wires are for the back. Do you want me to tell you more, and how to use them?
