    How to Install Docker on Windows 10

     Docker for Windows now requires Microsoft’s Hyper-V. Once enabled, VirtualBox will no longer be able to run virtual machines (your VM images will still remain).


    Docker for Windows runs on 64-bit Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise, and Education; 1511 November update, Build 10586 or later. 


    1.    Download Docker.
    2.    Double-click InstallDocker.msi to run the installer.
    3.    Follow the Install Wizard: accept the license, authorize the installer, and proceed with the install.

    2.    Docker starts automatically.
    3.    Docker loads a “Welcome” window giving you tips and access to the Docker documentation.

    PS C:\Users\username> docker-machine --version
