After you install Scid you will need to configure the chess engine. Click Play > Computer-UCI Engine. In the Configure UCi game window, Select 'Seconds per Move' = '2'. Check 'Start from current position'. Remember to flip the board if necessary, so that your color is at the bottom of the board. That way the computer will play the correct side, Black or White. Click 'Play' in the configure window. Each time you decide to take a move back, it will stop the chess engine, so you will have to restart it by clicking Play > Computer-UCI Engine, and then you have to click 'Play' again in the Configure UCi game window.
