  • Click on the "Download from Docker Hub" button to download the latest version of Docker
  • Run the downloaded installer. It will install Docker and add the Docker icon to the system tray
  • Click on the Docker icon in the system tray to open the Docker application
  • Click on the "Sign In" button and enter your Docker ID and password to log in. If you don't have a Docker ID, you can create one by clicking on the "Create a Docker ID" button.
  • Once you're logged in, you can start using Docker on your Windows machine.

Note: If you're running Windows 10 Home edition, you will need to install Docker Toolbox instead of Docker Desktop. Docker Toolbox is a legacy solution that allows you to use Docker on older versions of Windows
