Update Windows (Technical Users) Getting Started Instructions

It says in the docs:

> The hugo executable will be named as hugo_hugo-version_platform_arch.exe. Rename the executable to hugo.exe for ease of use.

I just downloaded 'hugo_extended_0.58.2_Windows-64bit.zip' and 'hugo_0.58.2_Windows-64bit.zip' and the hugo executable is just called `hugo.exe`. Are the instructions here out of date?
