Running Scratch 3.0's online editor requires Chrome or Mobile Chrome 63 or higher, Edge 15 or higher, Firefox 57 or higher, or Safari or Mobile Safari 11 or higher. Internet Explorer is not supported.[1]

If a computer does not meet those requirements, it may work with an older version instead. For more information, see Compatibility of Versions of Scratch.

For the offline editor, one must have one of the following:

  • Windows 7+[2]
  • macOS 10.11+[3]
  • ChromeOS
  • Android 6.0+

If your computer isn't supported but you have any one of these, you can install an older version of Scratch:
