Can’t find what you are looking for? Look at our alternative installers below

Mac users:

    1. This is a small installer file that will download the latest version of the app and make sure we use the proper settings.
    2. If you need a different installer format due to permissions issues, check out our “alternative installers” section.
    1. Run the Zight app from your Applications folder if it doesn’t open automatically.
    2. If you are logged in on the web, it should automatically log you in. If you aren’t, enter your login email address and password (or 'sign up' for a new account).
    3. Follow the step-by-step instructions.


Windows users:

  1. Zight requires .Net 4.5 Framework, so make sure you have it.
  2. Run the installation file by double-clicking the MSI file.
  3. Proceed with the installation steps and click 'Yes' if additional permission is required.
  4. Finish the installation and pull the Zight icon out of the Notification Area if it's hidden.
  5. Click on the Zight icon and create an account or press the "Sign In" button if you already have one.



Chrome Extension:

  1. Open up the installer page for Chrome
  2. Click ‘Install Extension’. 
  3. A new window will open. Then, click ‘add to Chrome’ and then select ‘add extension’ in the pop-up window.
  4. From here, your web dashboard will open up and ask you to log in if you aren’t logged in. You should now be successfully logged in and can access the app via the “puzzle piece” icon 🧩.
  5. Click the pin to keep the Chrome Extension on your taskbar:


We support Linux using our Chrome Extension.


iOS Device:

  1. Open your app store on your device and search for ‘Zight’ (iPhone users can download it from here)
  2. Select ‘get’ and put in the admin password for the device
  3. Once it’s downloaded, it will ask you to sign in 
  4. You can now use the app or go on any document or image on your iPhone/iPad and share to “Zight”, which will create a convenient link to your image.
