Download Slack for Windows

Using Slack on Windows has never been easier with the Slack desktop app. Take a look at the steps we’ve outlined below to get started.

Step 1: Download the Slack app

There are two ways to download Slack for Windows: from Slack’s download page or from the Windows Store.

Download from Slack

Windows Store

To install the Slack app, you need to be running Windows 7 or above. Here’s how to download the app to your desktop:

  1. Visit
  2. Click Download.
  3. Once the download is complete, double-click the file (called SlackSetup.exe). Slack will launch automatically once installed.

With the app installed, you can double-click the Slack icon the next time you need to launch it.

To download the Slack app from the Windows Store, you need to be running Windows 10 with the Anniversary Update installed:

  1. Find Slack in the Windows Store.
  2. Click Get the app.
  3. Once the app is installed, locate and select Slack in your Start menu to launch it.

Note: If you have the Slack app already installed on your desktop, we recommend uninstalling it before downloading another version.

Step 2: Sign in to your workspace

Once you’ve installed the Slack app, you can sign in to a workspace you’re already a member of, join a workspace or create your own.
