How do I install the TurboTax software for Windows?

We also have instructions for TurboTax software for Mac.

Installing TurboTax is easy. Start by closing all programs, including any firewall and virus-protection programs (remember to turn those back on after installation is complete).

If you downloaded your TurboTax software, simply double-click the downloaded file to launch the installer. Find your download.

If you have a CD, but don't have a CD drive, you can get a download version.

Otherwise, insert the CD into your computer's CD drive and the installation should start automatically. If it doesn't:

  1. Hold down the Windows+R keys to open the Run window.
  2. Click Browse, and then navigate to the TurboTax CD on your CD/DVD/RW drive (usually Drive D).
  3. Double-click the setup.exe file. The installation will now begin.

That's it! When you're ready to do your state return, we'll walk you through the state download and installation.
