There are many instances where you would like to run Android apps on your Windows computer. Maybe, you do not want to install an app on your Android phone or just want to play a game on a bigger screen.
Fortunately, now you easily run any Android app on your Windows or Mac computer. All you need to do is to install a program called BlueStacks. Follow these steps to run Android apps on your Windows or Mac computer in minutes.
Go to the download page of BlueStacks and download the program according to your operating system.
Double-click the downloaded file and run the setup. The setup is pretty standard, and at the end of the setup, you will be asked for App Store and application communication access. You should grant both because you will need them to download and run the Android apps.
Sign-in with Google Account
After installation, you will be presented with usual Android setting screens. After the usual setup, you will be given the option to sign-in with your Google account. It is recommended to sign-in with your Google account because it will let you synchronize your files and apps across multiple devices.
Installing the Apps from Play Store
Once BlueStacks is installed, you will see very familiar screens. If you have a touchscreen monitor, you can use your system just like an Android tablet. If you do not have a touchscreen, you can use the mouse to click and open the apps. You can go to the Play Store and download the Android apps of your choice.
BlueStacks is free but downloads many apps if you use the free version. If you do not want BlueStacks to download apps automatically, you can pay a yearly fee and upgrade to the premium version.
