OpenGL is not software, you don't download OpenGL.

Just install the drivers for your graphics card.

You do have a graphics card in your computer, when it's an integrated one (like an Intel) or whether it's a dedicated one (like an NV or AMD). Otherwise you would not be able to see anything on your monitor.

And if you have no monitor - then why do you need support for a graphics API?

There is no link to download software because OpenGL is not software. Which you have already been told.

OpenGL is an API. It is typically "implemented" by your graphics card drivers (which are system/OS software). This then provides applications on your machine with access to OpenGL.

Did you click on this link I posted?: Getting started (https://www.khronos.org/opengl/wiki/Getting_started)

This provides links to web sites where you can download graphics card / GPU drivers for the major GPU manufacturers.

But it's up to you to know what GPU(s) you have installed in your machine.

If you're running Windows, look under Display Adapters in Device Manager. Or you can install a program like GPU-Z (https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/) and it will tell you.
