# How to Install QGIS

  1. Navigate to the 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.
