How do I download Canvas on my Windows 10 Laptop.
Hello Robert Beyers Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. I'm not really sure I understand your question. Canvas is a web-based product, and so there isn't really anything to "download" in terms of the actual Canvas interface. You would normally log in to your school's Canvas environment via a web browser (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are your best choices here), and then you would access your courses that way. The only things you might have to download are materials for your course...such as PowerPoint presentations, documents, etc. that might be provided by your instructor (if you are a student). Otherwise, all other parts of Canvas are readily available to you after you log in. I briefly looked at your school's website to see if I could find any information for you, and I came across this page: Frequently Asked Questions | Wilmington University. It looks like there's a lot of great information for you to look through. I hope it will be of help to you. Thanks Robert...
I guess I'm still learning the differences between a cell phone app to call canvas and my new PC laptop where you have a browser to bring up to access the internet. I guess I was thinking how would I get the app for my laptop so I could just click on it and bring up canvas, like the cell phone. My last PC was windows XP. But I have this new one with win10 and it looks so much like a cell phone screen, well, thats what I was thinking.
Thanks for the replly.
Hello Robert Beyers...
Ah! Thank you for the additional explanation. That makes more sense now. To my knowledge, there is no Canvas app for you to download on your Windows 10 laptop. Just download either the Mozilla Firefox or the Google Chrome web browser (I prefer Chrome) to your laptop, and then sign in to Canvas using your school's Canvas URL. What are the browser and computer requirements for Canvas? and What are the basic computer specifications for Canvas?
And, if you don't have the mobile app installed on your phone yet, here are a few additional Guides for you:
Let us know if you have other questions about this, Robert...thanks!
Chris' advice should work. I just started using Canvas on my Surface Pro 7 and can easily access both teacher and student accounts. Good luck!
