How to Download and Install Inkscape

These instructions should work well if you are using Windows XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7. In this example, I am using Firefox to download Inkscape, but you could also use Internet Explorer  Google Chrome, or other, and although the steps may vary a little, the basic idea is still the same.

Step 5:

Wait for the download to complete, then launch/open the downloaded file.

Step 6

Select your language (or a language you’d like to learn the hard way…)

Step 7

Begin the pre-install, just keep clicking ‘Next’.

Step 8

Click Next

Step 9

Click Next

Step 10

Click ‘Install’. Inkscape will be installed on your computer. It can be removed at any time by going to Start > Control Panel > Programs > Uninstall a Program > Then select it from a list of programs installed on your computer.
