Using WordPress on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install WordPress on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

1: Download an Andriod Software emulator for Windows

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 

2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application.
If you do the above correctly, the Software will be successfully installed.

3: How to Use WordPress for Windows PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type WordPress in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on WordPress application icon. A window of WordPress will open and it will display the app in your Emulator Software. Hit the Install button and your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
Next, you will see the "All Apps" icon.
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the WordPress icon. Click on it and start using the application.

App Reviews

  • Love to be able to get to my blog from a touch of a button!

    By TulaandMomar
    I love to be able to get to my blog from just a touch of a button! Even though, the Wordpress app can be very confusing and can have many different, but small, malfunctions. I think it's super easy to be able to enter the app and get it set up though. You can still log in and out through it, you can access different things that you could on the computer or on the website and you can still post things with photos. If you have a hard time getting into the website to see your notifications or have any issues on the website then this app does not have those issues. More just little bugs or "viruses" in the app that shoots me back to the main screen of my device or messes up the comments. Like sometimes, it says there is an unread comment or like but when I actually go in the app there is no such thing... I have tried reloading the app but doesn't seem to work. The bugs don't bother me that much but if you worry about things then you probably don't want to get this app...
  • Could be better.

    I think that the app has gotten a lot cleaner in recent months, and there are some features present that previously weren’t unless you were on the desktop site. Despite that, I still am experiencing some issues with the app. My first and main issue is that it’s EXTREMELY difficult or impossible to manipulate the HTML in the iPad app. For instance, resizing photos with HTML does not work in-app. If I try to do so, then publish my post, all the formatting I did will disappear. My other problem is with text formatting. There is some bug (for lack of a better word) that occurs when using bold or italics. If I change my text to bold, then enter for a new paragraph and am still using bold, it will publish in such a way that all of the bold text is mashed together into one giant bold paragraph. There are also some huge bugs with ordered and unordered lists. Typically, the first item in my list will “jump” to the previous paragraph after I publish the post or save it as a draft. There seems to be no way to fix this, (either in HTML or Rich Text mode), unless I’m in the desktop site. Besides bugs, another feature that would be nice to have in the app is the ability to mosaic multiple photos like you can in the desktop site.
  • Does not work! Seriously...DOES NOT WORK!

    By GaryWD
    This is the classic “I wish I could give it a zero star rating”- I am sorry, but this thing has always been very buggy and never syncs properly. Finally, I was given advice from a tech support friend at another company who was familiar with this problem: he agreed the app is no good and told me that it was easier to just bookmark your web page on your phone and go directly to it. He was right— I put an icon on my home screen that I hit when I want to use/edit/check up on comments etc., and it works so much better than this dumb app which has only resulted in me wasting an hour or two of my life trying to get it to work properly. Don’t like to give negative reviews but my irritation level is too high to just delete it and forget it, so a parting shot before I delete it is warranted to keep future potential users from wasting time on it. You have been warned!
  • Loving it but struggling...

    By chandlerashley
    I just joined a couple of weeks ago. I’m new to blogging completely. I’m trying to set my site up the way I want to do it. But there are so many posts out there that it’s hard to decipher through them to see what I’m trying to find. I wish finding help with setting it up were easier and free. The site is a little hard to use to me in that for me all settings should be together. But you have to go to different places to edit different things, which in a sense I understand but it makes it confusing for newbies!! I’m sure over time I’ll get the hang of it and will figure out how to set up my site. Trying to figure out how to make page look better and what the different things are right now.
  • Fashion Blogsite

    By Honeybunnyxo
    I enjoy the website. I just wish I had more freedom with the layout even though I am not good at coding. I also wish that placing pages within pages were made a little easier. Instead of grouping all blog post together for me that I had the option to choose which post goes under which menu item. I have the personal website which is nice for me for now but eventually I will upgrade to a business one. I also wish that the mobile app was updated to the same ability as the actual website. I cannot change the font color on the mobile app so when I update blogs it automatically changes my font color black even though on my laptop I have the font as pink.
  • Be wary!

    By BangSplat
    I deleted two old "local" drafts from the app and the app also deleted the more recent published versions!! Gone! Several hours of unrecoverable work lost forever. Super unhappy. Update, Jan. 2018. This app also has issues synchronizing properly. I edit an existing draft at work on a browser, later open my iPad app at home, write more, then notice that my "at work" writings were missing and are now—unfortunately—overwritten and lost since the draft saved from the app. It seems the app assumes whatever version of a draft it has in still memory is current—BAD ASSUMPTION! Proper synchronization is major issue with this app. I'd recommend only editing from a browser and not using this app. I think I may just delete it off my iPad, it causes more headaches than it solves.
  • Pretty good

    By Raisinet
    At first I did not understand WordPress, I mainly posted from Go Daddy I think, but now since I am posting from WP I am learning more and how great WP is. People say it is expensive but I see that it offers a lot of potentials I am basically self taught. The plugin that I use would be the issue and I thought it was WordPress. I am a work in progress and I am still learning. I never really used WP that much because I was intimidated by it but I am getting better. I am still confused by Go Daddy. WordPress the function of each was explained but I know I will get even a better understanding of each role each play, but for now I think my recipes and blogging is coming along.
  • I wish it worked better!

    By Bduepancwiene s
    I love the idea of the Wordpress app, and this one has the potential to be so amazing. I love being able to draft posts, reply to comments and check my stats. The app tends to be unreliable most of the time though. I have to copy my work often and save to my iPhone Notes because so many times I have drafted a post, hit ‘update’ and I’ll get an error and lose EVERYTHING. A lot of times it won’t let you upload pictures. There is an error stating the max allowed for a photo is “zero KB” which is pretty frustrating. In today’s world, people like to do everything from their phones, but this app DEFINITELY does not replace the computer experience. It’s unfortunate. 😔
  • Should be zero stars

    By Primiumpoop
    This app has locked itself from functioning. It’s so buggy and broken that it’s asking me to log in (had some sort of error so needs me to confirm my password) except! Won’t let me press next to actually submit my password for verification. If I try to press cancel to log back in fully the app warns me “you’ll lose all your data on this device” what the hell Wordpress. I even tried updating my password to see if the app would fix itself. No lock I’m just going to have to use my browser. The developer has contacted me, but showed they have little understanding of the issue. I can not access the app at all (only says enter in your password and won’t let me press next at all) and yet the developer wants me to use the help and support feature within the app.
  • Drafts disappear without warning

    By Uzique
    Don’t ever write direct to your blog, at least on iPad. I’ve had two draft posts suddenly disappear as I was typing. That’s enough for me to want to never return. I don’t post frequently and had forgotten my last bad experience. Now I posted a short entry reminding myself about the problem. Both times I’d been writing for about 20 or 30 minutes. I know others have had the same issue and I learned that while searching for a fix. Be careful out there. AFTER I submitted the above review I received a response that I can’t use. Apple says “Automattic responded to your review of WordPress Automattic "Hi! So sorry to hear about the lost drafts. If you have a moment, please go to "Help & Support" in the app and tap on "Contact us" so we can note which editor you were using during the losses and any details that may help us locate the problem to fix it. BUT I can’t find Help & Support. According to the WP site it’s supposed to be a little ? question mark in the lower left corner but I don’t see that. If there is a Help & Support it would be better if it were findable. Very annoying app, at least on the iPad. Works great on a PC.
