Using Salesforce 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 Salesforce on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

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 Salesforce for Windows PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and locate the search bar. Now type Salesforce in the search bar and hit Search. You will easily see the app. Click on Salesforce application icon. A window of Salesforce 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.

App Reviews

  • Ok, when it works

    By jtr02a
    Using app on an iPhone X and have constant issues. When I click a SF link that opens in the app, it only works occasionally... most of the time it never loads the screen. Additionally, reports of any size are practically unusable. Furthermore, when attempting to log a call, it should be more intuitive (checking matching leads/contacts/accounts in close proximity to the device). Instead the user has to perform a specific search and hope the results are relevant (and actually show up). For the amount of money spent on SF, one would hope to see a better thought-out and more thoroughly tested app. Very disappointing; my outside sales reps continually tell me it is easier to boot up their laptop to log a call then try to frustrate themselves with the app.
  • Horrible user experience -needs overhaul

    A $112 stock, millions of users do business on their Androids/iPhone every day, but yet the developers of this app still don’t get it or flat out don’t care because they are more concerned with business to business functionality. The old Salesforce app that they made us delete Dec 2017 was hands down 100 x’s better then this app. I am on the go non-stop, need quick access to get to a phone number, call that person, jump out , go to another account, create a contact/acct etc....but u can’t do that with this app. Not even close. Pros: Not much -truly Cons: I don’t want to have to click 5 times to get to the clients phone number. Load times are much longer. The alphabetized account list on the old app was fantastic —hit the letter —accounts come up. Now I have to start typing, then I have to click “related “ to see a contacts list , then scroll down and hold to see more contacts ? Guys cmon....really? $112 stock and this is the the best experience you can give us. It’s like you want people to move on from your services.
  • Terrible User Experience

    By SparksCVEN
    I am very much a fan of integrating technology with business, but this application is wretched. I cannot believe this is not an app in Beta. The load times are horrible, I find myself clicking 100 buttons to get to something that should be readily available. The menus are confusing and not helpful. Links to projects do not work, and I am constantly having to reload the app because it will not load images. I should be able to log calls easier. I need this to actually help me not make me work harder. I have no reason to use this other than my work is requiring me to use it. Otherwise I would be managing things from another CRM. ridiculous.
  • !!! Amazing Tool !!!

    You can't find a better more tuned tool anywhere. Once you learn all of the options and use them your on your way to a very successful sales career. The only thing that's slowing this program down would be the person thats not using it.. I would like to personally thank those people that don't use this tool. Thanks to you I've gained more sales and more money.... Keep on doing what you do and I'll keep doing what I do and make more $$$ and build more new customer relationships
  • Rarely works

    Update after update this app continues to disappoint. The only functionality that always works is the chatter feature which I seriously don’t care about. I haven’t been able to search for an account for months and the scheduler feature doesn’t ever load, always says no internet connection. I’ve checked, I’m connected. Whether it’s a WiFi connection or over LTE in the field says “no internet connection tap to reload”. So I tap, it spins, I give up, open my laptop or iPad, find the record I need and move along. I keep thinking the app will work and to my dismay it never does. Salesforce mobile app, this is your precipice. Until the functionality is actually working this is a waste of time.
  • Terrible App

    2
    By SkeevieWonder
    The purported purpose of this app is to make things quick and simple, so you can enter information easily on the go. This app fails miserably. It's slow, buggy and anything but user friendly. Typical SF flaws carry over, like the inability to log a date or time for calls made in the past, or log actual customer visits in a straightforward way. Very little integration with mobile features like the GPS, email app or phone. Everything has to be entered manually, making me wonder why SF even bothered releasing an app in the first place. Did I mention it's very slow and buggy? Oh, I did. Just wanted to stress that. If I were a developer with SF I'd be ashamed of this effort...
  • It's quick and easy

    There are other apps that are better at pipeline management like clari etc but SF1 is a simplified version of the web vetsuon perfect for sales people needing to input and capture meeting notes and look at a high level opps or contacts on the go. In other words it's not as robust as the web version but the UI is much better in terms of workflow for people on the go and it is fast. Can't create RFx activities but can input notes and chatter is easy.
  • Sales Force is Laggy/Bad Updates

    3
    By Hotel Employee
    Our hotel is state of the art and brand new, which means we have top tier technology. Despite our strong Wi-Fi signals throughout the hotel, I often find myself waiting for the program to finish loading. Also, their have been some unfortunate updates. An example would be in previous versions we could see all the different statuses of cases at once. That way we could quickly take notice of cases that were potentially overlooked. In a newer update, they removed this option. Because of these issues, I give it a very GENEROUS 3 stars.

    My employer uses this app for dispatching tickets to myself and other techs to document work we do. I believe the app can have more features such as different statuses like EnRoute to Site, OnSite, etc. My previous employer used EFS when I started working with them and then began using Clearvision. I would have to say those are better and user friendly with more features compared to using this app. Overall, the app is not that bad but it can use more features and have improvements. That's why I only gave it 3 stars instead of 4 or 5 stars.
  • For what I do

    SF App works pretty good. I have been using app for about 5 yrs? Give or take. I would give the app a 5 except it does not incorporate a chunk of functions/lists that I use on the desk top version. ( yet) That said, I post pictures, have access to many functions and objects we created for our work reports and data tracking that are essential to reporting for my work as a field rep. I can't imagine going back to using any other program.
