I have downloaded a free template for Joomla, but I do not know how to install it.

I saw on some forums I had to log in as administrator and in the Extensions menu, select "Extensions manager". But I got lost. Can you provide me with some detailed steps on how to do that?

From https://www.gavick.com/documentation/joomla/tutorials/how-to-install-joomla-template-manually

To install Joomla template follow these steps:

  1. Login to your Joomla admin area as normal
  2. click on Install Extensions in the left menu, or Extensions → Extension Manager in the top menu.
  3. Once in the Extension Manager click on the Upload Package File tab Click on the C
  4. Click on the Choose file button and select your downloaded template package for upload
  5. Once selected, hit the Upload & Install button to get started. Wait a few seconds and the template should be uploaded and installed, ready for you to use.

    That tutorial also has alternate instructions for a manual installation using the Discover tool.

The official instructions are at: https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Installing_a_template

Sorry for the link only answer but the official Joomla Documentation is more likely to be kept up to date than anything I copy into this answer.
