I have installed Tor via yum. I open the brower and search in it, but if i check the tor service status, it is inactive:

● tor.service - Anonymizing overlay network for TCP
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/tor.service; disabled)
Active: inactive (dead)

So how can i use the browser, and the tor service is inactive? When I fire the browser it spits the bootstrap process, but same does the systemctl start tor. Tor browser does not use tor services?

Can someone enlight me? Thank you.
