  1. Download the Thonny Windows zip file above. The file should be named "thonny_windows.zip".
  2. Go to where the file downloaded (typically your "Downloads" folder), right-click on thonny_windows.zip and select "Extract All".
  3. Once the zip file is extracted, inside the thonny_windows folder, you will see a folder labeled Thonny. This folder contains all the application materials for Thonny. NOTE: You can move this folder wherever you like, but you MUST move everything together or else the application will break.
  4. Inside the Thonny folder is an application labeled "thonny" (you will have to scroll down to the bottom). Right-click on this application and select "Send to...", "Desktop (create shortcut)" -- or, equivalently, right-click it and select "Pin to Taskbar".
  5. You should now have a Thonny icon on your Desktop (or Taskbar) that will start the application!

  1. Download the Thonny Mac zip file above. The file should be named "thonny_mac.zip".
  2. Open Finder and go to the location of where you downloaded the file. Extract the zip file (by double clicking it). If you use Safari, the file may already have been extracted for you.
  3. After extracting, you should see a Thonny application. Move this to your Applications folder.
  4. The first time you open the app, you may get a warning that it is from an unidentified developer. To get around this, right-click on the app and select "Open". You will be met with the same dialogue box, except this time you will be presented with a second option to "Open". After choosing "Open", you should be able to double-click the app in the future.
  5. You should be all set to open Thonny from your Applications folder!
