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 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:
- Hold down the Windows+R keys to open the Run window.
- Click Browse, and then navigate to the TurboTax CD on your CD/DVD/RW drive (usually Drive D).
- 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.
