It natively supports many programming languages and markup languages, and its functionality can be extended by users with plugins, typically community-built and maintained under free-software licenses.

Here i am going to show how to install this latest build of sublime text on windows and OS X.

Installing Sublime Text On Windows System

Portable or Not Portable?

Sublime Text comes in two flavors for Windows: normal, and portable. Most users should be better served by a normal installation. Use the portable version only if you know you need it.

Normal installations separate data between two folders: the installation folder proper, and the data directory (user-specific directory for data; explained later in this guide). Normal installations also integrate Sublime Text with File Explorer.

Portable installations keep all files needed by Sublime Text in a single folder. This folder can be moved around and the editor will still work.

  1. Download the installer (.exe file)
