After you download Cursor, installing the product is very straightforward.
While we don't restrict access for any particular configuration, we recommend the below as a minimum guideline:
- CPU: Dual-core i5 or greater
- RAM: 2GB (available)
- Display: 1440x900 or greater
Mac OS X Installation
For Mac, simply open the DMG that you download and drag the Cursor icon into the Applications folder.
For Windows users, the downloadable file is an install wizard that automatically installs the product, creates a start menu shortcut, and places a shortcut on the desktop. The installation is only available to the installing user for security reasons, meaning other users on the same physical machine will need to install separately.
NOTE: Cursor will check for updates automatically each time you restart the application, including during the first startup.
