The page will try to automatically recommend the correct architecture (64- or 32-bit), but you can select "All Download Versions" to get more choices. To determine your computer architecture manually, go to :menuselection:`Settings --> About`. Your architecture will be listed as the :guilabel:`System Type` in the :guilabel:`Device Specifications` section.
Krita by default downloads an **installer EXE**, but you can also download a **portable zip-file** version instead. Unlike the installer version, this portable version does not show previews in Windows Explorer automatically. To get these previews with the portable version, also install Krita's **Windows Shell Extension** extension (available on the download page).

Flatpak
~~~~~~~
We also have Flatpak for nightlies and stable builds, these builds are not maintained by the core developers themselves. You can either get the builds from the `KDE community website <https://binary-factory.kde.org>`_ or from the `Flathub Maintainers <https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.kde.krita>`_.
To install flatpak build from the software centre just open the flatpakrepo files with Discover or the software center provided by your distribution:
`Flathub Repo <https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo>`_
`KDE Flatpak Repo <https://distribute.kde.org/kdeapps.flatpakrepo>`_
After adding one of the above repos you can then search for Krita and the software center will show you the flatpak version for installation.
If you prefer doing it from terminal you can use the following commands to install Krita's flatpak build
For KDE Flatpak Repo:
``flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists kdeapps --from https://distribute.kde.org/kdeapps.flatpakrepo``
``flatpak install kdeapps org.kde.krita``
For installing it from Flathub Repo:
``flatpak remote-add --if-not-exists flathub https://flathub.org/repo/flathub.flatpakrepo``
``flatpak install kdeapps org.kde.krita``
Snaps
~~~~~
There are snap packages provided by the ubuntu snap developers, these are generally not up to date. The Krita Developers do not provide or build the snap packages themselves.
To install Krita as a snap package, first install snapd application. Snapd is installed by default on ubuntu distributions.
If you are on ubuntu distribution then Krita's snap package may show up in the software center or you can run the following command in terminal
``sudo snap install krita``
.. note::
The Flatpak and Snap builds are not tested by the core developers of Krita, so you may encounter some bugs while running Krita installed from them.
