Get the exe, copy it to your windows directory (or somewhere in your path).
Open up a command prompt (start->run->cmd.exe) and run "tidy -h".

The official tidy web page is excellent for programmers but not very
friendly when it comes to html developers.  Considering 78% of the
people visiting my binaries page get the EXE, I think it's high time
for some redesigning.

I can't change the official site but in the next few days I'll make my
binaries page (above URL) friendlier to non-programmers.
