Using Zulip on Windows

Zulip has a Windows client, compatible with Windows versions 7, 8 and 10; it is identical in functionality to the Zulip web application. The client can be download through the Zulip website.

The client is regularly updated and is a wrapper of the web application, but with enhanced notifications and can run in the background. The current version does not contain any significant features additional to those in the web application.

Note: Since Zulip is no longer running on a browser, many external keyboard shortcuts endemic to a browser will no longer work, for example, ALT-LEFT to go back to the previous page.

Connecting to a server

When you open the Zulip client for the first time, you will come across a screen asking for your organizations's server address on Zulip. Enter your organization's address and press the Connect button.

There's no need to add https:// in the case that your server is running a secure HTTP (HTTPS) protocol.

However, if your server uses an insecure HTTP connection, you'll have to write http:// manually. A message will appear, warning you about the risks of using this type of connections. In case you have no other choice, choose the Use HTTP option.
