Download the 3CX Windows App – How To Series


Welcome to the first of our “How To” series where we will show you how to best utilise 3CX to its potential.


Whilst the 3CX interface continues to be optimised for Chrome browsers across Windows and Mac, we still recommend installing the 3CX Windows app where possible! The Windows app for 3CX remains a reliable softphone interface. There are also some benefits over its browser companion, including automatic sign in when you log in to your machine.


The current 3CX welcome configuration email for users doesn’t specify where to download the Windows app. Resulting in many customers asking “how do I download the 3CX windows app?”.

However, using the softphone can be downloaded by the following steps:


1. Head to the link above, and select ‘Download the Windows App’. Once downloaded, click to open the installer.



2. Follow the installer steps to finish downloading the application



3. Head back to your 3CX welcome email and double click the configuration file to open your account onto the application!



4. Enjoy your 3CX Windows Softphone!
