A: Could you tell me how the software works?

B: It is not a big task. You can follow the instruction by watching the demo video.

Is "It is not a big task" suitable? or Do you suggest any phrase?

In my understanding, (A) wants to undertand how the software works. (B) could tell him briefly or give him some references.

If A wants to know how to install or run the software then you could say the following:

A: Could you tell me how to install the software?

B: Sure. It's not difficult. Just follow the instructions by watching the demo video.


A: Could you tell me how to run/launch the software?

B: Of course. It's not difficult. Just follow the instructions by watching the demo video.

You do know that installing software is different than running it. So choose what fits your context. If both, add them together like the following:

A: Could you tell me how to install and launch the software?

Moonrise Could you tell me how to run/launch the software?

If he/she intends to understand the whole process of functionalities of the software, can we use the verbs "run/launch"?

It won't be accurate.

In the original thread, you said: It's not a big task. You can follow the instructions by watching the demo video.

This gives me the impression that there is something or steps that he/she wants to do but he/she doesn't understand how. So, I guess that the verb that you need to use is "use". It's enough. Because originally if you want to use the software you will lunch it first. I'd suggest either one of the following:

-Can you tell me how to use the software?

-Could you show me how to use the software? (This would require the other part to show you practically whether by watching a demo video or using a PC.)

-Could you help me understand the software usage and its functions?
