BlueStacks is a well-known piece of software that will help you run Android on your Windows device and use many of the available apps on this platform without owning an Android device.

This environment will allow you to run your favorite games and apps such as Candy Crush Saga and also WhatsApp Messenger right on your desktop. This application will offer you a lot of options, and you will have the ability to connect to AppStore and even to Google Play.

Android is the most popular operating system for mobile devices and other devices such as tablets. It has an open nature, so anyone can add to it and create apps for it.

That’s why many people prefer it to Apple. But did you know that you can now run it on your computer without actually owning an Android device?

Yes, that’s right – you can do so with Bluestacks App Player, a well-known emulator of Android that will let you run this operating system on your computer.

Simple to Use

Even though BlueStacks is quite a powerful emulator, it still features an easy-to-use system that even the biggest beginners will be able to use. It will look exactly like the mobile Android system, so you should be fine if you have some degree of familiarity with it.

All the buttons are incorporated from Android, so you’ll be able to start right away.

You’ll need first to install it, and then you can start using it. But note that you’ll need a Google account and .NET Framework, which will help you run this emulator.

You’ll then start using all the apps from the Android world and download them to your PC.

Download and Manage Apps

The built-in browser inside this tool will help you browse the internet for all the apps you can download. You may even see your Twitter or Facebook account with this browser if you want.

You can create shortcuts you download on your desktop. The loading times are quite minimal.

Conclusion

Overall, BlueStacks is an excellent Android emulator that will help you run Android and its apps on your computer.

It is not opening on my PC. There is a notification saying “This can’t run on your PC, check it in Windows Store”.

Hi,

Please try installing it as administrator (right click on the installation kit, “Run as administrator …”). If it is not working repair your Windows Registry with a tool like CCleaner

Is there a way to uninstall some of the included games ?
The Bluestacks Installer is big with 446 MB.
But that is nothing compared to the Bluestacks Android Engine where the VDI files are over 3 GB in size !

I use it actually only to run ColorNote on my Windows laptop.
