This article lists which systems can support which versions of Scratch.

Scratch 3.0


Main article: Offline Editor
  • macOS (OS X) 10.13 or later (although the Mac App store shows Scratch Desktop as being for versions 10.11 and later)
  • Windows 10 or later[note 1]
  • ChromeOS
  • Android 6.0 or later on tablets

Scratch Desktop is not officially supported for Linux, however, there are various unofficial ways of running Scratch on Linux.


Because it is written in HTML5 and JavaScript, Scratch 3.0 runs on most recent web browsers. The following are officially supported:[1]

  • Chrome 63+ or Mobile Chrome 63+
  • Edge 15+
  • Firefox 57+
  • Safari 11+ or Mobile Safari 11+

Scratch 2.0


  • Mac OS X — a Mac with an Intel processor
  • Windows XP or later
  • (GNU/)Linux — Fedora 13, Ubuntu 10.10, or openSUSE 11.3 or later
  • Requires Adobe AIR

The Scratch 2.0 Offline Editor can be downloaded at scratch:download/scratch2.[note 2] For macOS 10.10 and later or Windows 7 and later, the latest version of Adobe AIR may be downloaded here. For Linux and older operating systems, the AIR 2.6 runtime may be downloaded here. In the latter case, you must download the "Mac OS 10.5 & Older" version of Scratch.


There is also an online version of Scratch 2.0, which is compatible with all devices that support Flash Player 10.2 or later.[2] A test to see whether a device has Flash properly installed is available here. If a blank page is displayed Flash is not installed properly.

Until the release of Scratch 3.0, the online 2.0 editor could be found at projects:editor. This is no longer the case, but ScratchX, which is very similar to Scratch 2.0, or s2online, an unofficial version of Scratch 2.0, may be used instead.

Scratch 1.4

  1. Despite not being officially supported, Scratch Desktop does work on Windows 7.
  2. Alternatively, a specific version of Scratch 2.0 may be downloaded from (the version shouldn't have a "v" at the beginning, so for example version 451 has a URL ending with Scratch-451.exe). Replace .exe with .dmg for macOS or .air for Linux and old macOS versions (10.5 or older)
