Snagit (Windows): Installation Instructions

Once Snagit has been downloaded, it needs to be installed.  If you need to re-download, the Snagit can be re-downloaded here (previous versions too!). 

  1. Locate the "snagit.exe" file that was downloaded after purchasing Snagit.  In most cases, this is going to be in your Downloads folder, which will be in C:\Users\YOUR USERNAME \Downloads\

    TIP

    A quick way to get to your Downloads folder is to look for this button on your task bar:

     

    After clicking it, expand the This PC section on the left, and there should be a Downloads folder here.

  2. In the Downloads folder, should be the Snagit installation file, most likely "snagit.exe."  Double click this file to begin the installation process. 



  3. To install using the default settings, after accepting the License Terms, click the Install button (A).  To install using custom settings, after accepting the License Terms, click the gear icon next Options (B).  



    NOTE:  If you are seeing the screen below when you double click the install file, then Snagit is already installed on your computer.  Please close out of this window by clicking the X in the top right hand corner, and proceed to step 4.
