→‎Octave-{{Release}}: added --force-gui note.
The easiest way to install GNU Octave on Microsoft Windows is by using [ MXE] builds. For the current release, both 32-bit and 64-bit installers and zip archived packages (.zip and .7z formats) can be found at [].
For executable installers, the user can simply run the downloaded file and follow the on-screen installation prompts. It is recommended that the installation path does not include spaces or non-ASCII characters. Shortcuts to the program will be created automatically.
For the zip-file archives, the user should extract the file content to a directory on the harddrive (such as C:\Octave). Manual shortcuts can then be created to either the octave.bat or octave.vbs files in the main installation directory. '''Note that starting with Octave 4.4.0, the shortcuts will no longer start the graphical user interface by default. The user needs to add --force-gui to any manual shortcuts to start Octave with the GUI. (Right-click on the shortcut, select Properties, and add --force-gui to the end of the Target field.)'''
