Go to https://mc-launcher.com/special/minecraft in a web browser. This is the website you can use to download TLauncher. It's the tiny text below "Get It Now" at the bottom of the page. This takes you to a page that has a direct download link for TLauncher. - Alternatively, you can click one of the download icons for your operating system. However, this will take you to AdFly, which is a sketchy website that contains lots of adware, malware, and viruses. If you do go to AdFly, don't click anything.
