How Do I Install SketchUp on Windows 10?

Installing SketchUp on Windows 10 is a straightforward process that can be completed in just a few simple steps. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the entire installation process, ensuring that you have SketchUp up and running on your Windows 10 system in no time.

Step 1: Downloading SketchUp

To begin, you need to download the SketchUp installer from the official website. Open your favorite web browser and navigate to Look for the download button and click on it.

Step 2: Running the Installer

Once the installer has finished downloading, locate it in your Downloads folder or wherever you saved it. Double-click on the installer file to run it. You may be prompted by Windows User Account Control for permission to run the installer; if so, click “Yes” to proceed.

Step 3: Choosing Installation Options

The installer will now launch and display an introduction screen. Read through the information provided and click “Next” to continue with the installation process.

In the next screen, you will be presented with two options: “Typical” and “Custom.” For most users, the “Typical” installation is recommended as it includes all of the necessary components for SketchUp. However, if you want more control over which features are installed, you can choose the “Custom” option.

Note: If you choose the “Custom” option, make sure to select all required components for SketchUp to function properly.

Step 4: Accepting License Agreement

The following screen will display SketchUp’s End User License Agreement (EULA). Take a moment to read through the agreement. If you agree to the terms, select the checkbox stating “I accept the terms in the license agreement” and click “Next” to proceed.

Step 5: Selecting Installation Location

Now you need to choose where SketchUp will be installed on your Windows 10 system. By default, SketchUp will install in the Program Files folder. If you want to change the installation location, click on the “Browse” button and select a different folder.

Step 6: Installing SketchUp

With all the necessary options selected, you are ready to begin installing SketchUp. Click on the “Install” button to start the installation process.

Note: Depending on your system’s specifications, this process may take a few minutes. Be patient and do not interrupt the installation.

Step 7: Completing Installation

Once the installation is complete, a window will appear confirming that SketchUp has been successfully installed. By default, the “Launch SketchUp” option will be selected. Leave it checked if you want to start using SketchUp immediately after closing the installer.

If you encounter any issues during installation, please consult SketchUp’s official documentation or visit their support forums for assistance.
