Perhaps your browser automatically unzipped the plugin after downloading it? Tropy looks for the downloaded .zip files to install a plugin. So just download the plugin again, making sure it won’t get unzipped or, alternatively, you can manually install the plugin by moving the unzipped plugin folder into your plugins folder (which you can open via Help -> Show plugins folder).

The part about selecting the .zip file should be clarified in the instruction. I was also confused about this point.

Also, can we delete or move the .zip file after it has been installed?

Thanks! Yes, you can remove the zip file after the installation. Behind the scenes, what happens is that the plugin gets installed in the plugin directory (you can see it at Help -> Show plugin folder).
