Using NetBeans for the first time and I can't create a new project

I am completely new to Java and have installed Netbeans, however when I select File then New Project it doesn't do anything.
If I click on File then open Project it does open an explorer window, but I have nothing to open and I can;t get started

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sounds like you've not installed correctly. Go through the installation notes carefully
You probably need to start by uninstalling it
