Where is the Keka main window?

Just downloaded this app and I can't fathom how to use it.
There is no main window, which I am told is where I have to put the .rar files I want to unpack.
But where is this window?
When I double click the app icon, I get a window that has Method: as the title, with a slider that goes from Store to Slow.
It doesn't have any place for me to put the files. I took a screen shot of this window but I can't find how to attach it here.
This app has no help from the menu bar.

This is the main window, just drop the files in it. Also you can drop the files in the Keka icon in the dock.

But where is "this"? Not this forum surely?

Hahaha I meant the window you were talking about. Take a look at the wiki: https://github.com/aonez/Keka/wiki/Extracting-with-Keka

But I can't see that window shown in the wiki instructions when I open the app. This is the point of my question.

You said you see a window where you can set the method. This is the main window, and there you should drop the files, as stated in the wiki.

Oh OK. Well, this app is an example of bad software design - software that doesn't tell you how to use it and that is not obvious either.
