How do you get instruments to show in Kontakt player?

Completely new to Kontakt... I have native access installed. I installed Kontakt and a bunch of other stuff (Komplete, Guitar Rig)... but I was under the impression Kontakt had a bunch of instruments (synths etc) that came with it... when I load up the stand alone Kontakt or as an instrument in my DAW (cakewalk)... it's blank. I don't know why instruments aren't showing (videos online I viewed, they just seem to be there), or where to find them if they live somewhere on my drive.

I know a complete beginner question, but I searched the community and tried to find documentation with no luck. Thanks in advance.

    Did you install the library? You need to install some synths as well, such as Massive

    You might want to look for the Kontakt Factory Library in your Native Access and check if you've installed it already.

    thank you - I don't see anything called Library but Kontakt Factory Selection looks like it may include some instruments. Will also look for Massive
