If you downloaded the .exe file just run it, it will do the right thing.

Welcome to the Ranch

Remember the installation location because you will need it later when you update your System PATH.

...depends. JDK-16 for Windows updates the PATH for you which usually works.

That's a new feature I hadn't noticed before.

Don't forget that the new PATH will only be in effect when you open a new command window. Existing command windows will almost certainly not be updated.
