Version: v0.7.3 (Legacy)

Install on Windows

The easiest way to install espanso on Windows is by using the official installer. Note: espanso currently supports Windows 10 only.

Using the Installer

Download the installer by clicking on the button below and follow the instructions.

If you completed the installation procedure, you should have espanso running. A good way to find out is by going on any text field and typing :espanso. You should see "Hi there!" appear.

At this point, you are ready to read the Getting Started tutorial.

Problems you may experience

Because espanso is not digitally signed, you may experience a warning from Windows Smartscreen. In this case, just click on "More info" (1) and then on "Run anyway" (2), as shown in the picture:

Hi! I'm Federico, the creator of espanso. I develop espanso in my (little) spare time and I decided to make it open source because I thought it could be useful to many people.

If you liked the project, please consider making a small donation, it really helps :)

A special thanks goes to all the wonderful people who supported espanso along the way

Together, we will make espanso the first universal text expander, open to everyone.


Espanso is open source and hosted on GitHub.
