# How to Install QGIS

  1. Navigate to the QGIS Documentation QGIS Download page (opens new window)

  2. Find the appropriate installer for your operating system. For Windows users, we recommend to download a standalone MSI installer for the long-term release:
    QGIS standalone installer download

  3. Run the installer when it has finished downloading:
    QGIS installer Setup Wizard

  4. Continue the installation using the default installation options.

QGIS should now be installed on your computer.


QGIS is a powerful tool with a great community that can help you achieve a lot.

We recommend using QGIS Documentation QGIS User Guide (opens new window) and QGIS Documentation QGIS Training Manual (opens new window) to get familiar with QGIS and its functionality.
