Computer Operating Systems Compatible With Canvas

Jump to solution

Hello.

Where can I find information on specific computer operating  systems (the minimum version required) for Canvas LMS?

Although, the article below provides information on specific browser versions required, and unless I missed it, it does not provide the specifics I need on operating systems; for example, Mac OS 10.4.

Thanks.

What are the browser and computer requirements for Instructure products?

@manish_tripathi These are the requirements for Canvas which may be the same page you are referencing:

It does not specify the operating system as it is more based on the browser and if your operating system can support that browser then you should be all set.  If the operating system is too old to successfully run any of the supported browsers then you will obviously run into issues.  I can tell you that I have a laptop that is very outdated operating system wise but I have newer browsers and it does not have any issues with Canvas.  (It is not my main laptop but one I sometimes use for emergencies).

Hope that helps!
