Docker Desktop

Install Docker Desktop – the fastest way to containerize applications.


Docker Extensions

Transform and optimize workflows by connecting to an array of pre-built developer tools from our Docker Extensions Marketplace for things like debugging, testing, networking, and security.  Explore near endless workflow possibilities by creating your own custom tools and share them with your team or the whole world.

Volume Management, Dev Environments and more

Takes the guesswork out of volume management. Pro, Team, and Business subscribers can quickly and easily explore their volumes, identify what’s taking up space and remove unneeded files and directories right from the Dashboard. Docker Desktop simplifies setting up common and consistent local developer environments across an organization.

Secure from the start

Docker Desktop helps you quickly and safely evaluate software so you can start secure and push with confidence. Docker Desktop now includes the ability to generate a Software Bill of Material (SBOM) pre-build, as well as vulnerability scanning powered by Snyk, which scans your containers and provides actionable insights and recommendations for remediation in your images. Learn more about end-to-end vulnerability scanning and how to shift security left in your app delivery pipeline.


Simplify Code to Cloud

Simplify code to cloud application development by closely integrating with Azure Container Instances (ACI). You get the same workflow in Docker Desktop and the Docker CLI with all the container compute you want. No infrastructure to manage. No clusters to provision.

Image Access Management

Stay more secure by managing which container images on Docker Hub developers can access, and gain more control by configuring organizations to only allow access to Docker Official Images and Docker Verified Publishers. Available with Docker Business.

Build Kubernetes-ready applications on your desktop

Docker Desktop is an application for MacOS, Linux, and Windows machines for the building and sharing of containerized applications and microservices.

Docker Desktop delivers the speed, choice and security you need for designing and delivering these containerized applications on your desktop. Docker Desktop includes Developer tools, Kubernetes and version synchronization to production Docker Engines. Docker Desktop allows you to leverage certified images and templates and your choice of languages and tools. Development workflows leverage Docker Hub to extend your development environment to a secure repository for rapid auto-building, continuous integration and secure collaboration.

Considering Alternatives?

Developers love using Docker Desktop for all the best reasons: it’s easy to use, it accelerates productivity, and it eliminates the toil of setting up complex environments for building modern applications.

And while Docker Engine is sometimes viewed as a drop-in DIY (do-it-yourself) alternative for Docker Desktop, it’s important to understand that there are vast differences between the two, and that going it alone might not be as simple – or economical – as it seems. Learn more.
