First you need to click or double click on the file you downloaded because it is a compressed. After doing so you should end up with a folder called "ScreenUtil"
1) Goto Spotlight in upper right, and type the word Terminal
2) Spotlight should find it, and now you click it.
Do we have a Terminal WIndow open now? Yes, then:

Are we there?

Un - Real !!!
Yep. Was working just a short while ago, I'm talking my way through an assist to open terminal at the moment on this issue in another thread. That person has downloaded though. Perhaps give it a bit.
Wait... that's this thread. And that's where you came in.

If you placed the file on your desktop and then double clicked on it so it created a folder named "ScreenUtil", then below steps should match very close.
Starting Point is from when Terminal WIndow opens from Spotlight:
If you get some sort of output that resembles above, the very next command is:

A known starting point is a novel idea.
I guess Step One is determine if you downloaded the correct file. It is very probably you downloaded the link to the file, and not the file itself. Mimic my settings shown below for the Desktop "Show View Options" (right click anywhere on the Desktop to bring up the menu), and what size are the file or files you downloaded?
This is what I was hoping you had, and what we are striving for:

Well, that a good thing. Can you open that folder and take a screen capture so I can see its contents?
Press Command-Shift and the 4 key at same time, your cursor will turn into a bullseye and you can select an area on the screen by right clicking and dragging the area with the mouse. As soon as you let go of the right click, a snap shot will take a picture and place it on your desktop.

The ScreenUtil folder is 97,036 bytes or 106 KB. It includes a readme first text and a user file plus a file called "scrutil". Scruti is an application downloaded from the internet and asks for permission to open it.
