Checking for updates

Updated 4 years ago
This page shows old instructions for MuseScore 2.
For MuseScore 4 users, see Checking for updates.

    There are two ways to check for updates.

    Automated update check

    1. From the menu, select EditPreferences... (Mac: MuseScorePreferences...);
    2. Select the Update tab:
      Dialog: Edit / Preferences... / Update
    3. Tick the box marked "Check for new version of MuseScore."

    Now MuseScore will check for updates on every start and notify you, if need be.

    Check for update

    1. From the menu, select HelpCheck for Update:
      Menu: Help / Check for Update
    2. A dialog will appear with the update status: either "No Update Available" or "An update for MuseScore is available:" followed by a link to download it.

    Note: These options are only available in the Mac and Windows versions of MuseScore (except the version from the Windows Store), as only those can be updated directly from Linux distributions (and the Windows Store) have different mechanisms to make updates available.
