There is no one click solutions. You have to manually rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess.

1. Rename htaccess.txt into .htaccess with, for example, Total Commander.
2. Edited .htaccess open with a DW, Sublime, Notepad++ or any other software you're using for code and change line 22 (for the time of writing this, it is on line 22). Actually you need to comment this line with a "#" on the beginning of the line (without quotes)
3. In Joomla Global Configuration menu turn these options on:

* Search Engine Friendly URLs
* Use URL Rewriting

Refresh webpage a few times
