A window opens, showing all the mods that were subscribed by you in the Steam Workshop. You will see all the installed mods and some mods that still need to be installed. If it hasn’t done downloading subscribed mods, it will complete downloading those first prior to the appearance of the window. Now, you click “Yes” to start the mod installation process.
A smaller window pops up with a progress bar. Now you have to wait until the mods are done.
When it’s done, the mods will display as “installed”.
Now click the X in the upper right corner to close the Mod Manage window.
