macOS Recovery makes it easy to reinstall the Mac operating system, even if you need to erase your startup disk first. All you need is a connection to the Internet. If a wireless network is available, you can choose it from the Wi-Fi menu , which is also available in macOS Recovery.

  1. 3 It depends where it installs to. If it goes into the main Applications folder, then yes, it's available to all users - though each user will have their own distinct prefs, saved under their account. If it's installed to /Users/ your name/Applications, then it's only available to that user.
  2. (optional) If you chose Install for all users of this computer, enter the administrator credentials for the device. Click Install Software. Once the installation is complete, click Close. Zoom application permissions. Due to increased security and permissions with Mac OS 10.14 Mojave and 10.15 Catalina, you will be prompted to.

1. Start up from macOS Recovery

To start up from macOS Recovery, turn on your Mac and immediately press and hold one of the following sets of keys on your keyboard. Release the keys when you see an Apple logo, spinning globe, or other startup screen.

Command (⌘)-R

Reinstall the latest macOS that was installed on your Mac (recommended).


Upgrade to the latest macOS that is compatible with your Mac.


Reinstall the macOS that came with your Mac, or the closest version still available.

You might be prompted to enter a password, such as a firmware password or the password of a user who is an administrator of this Mac. Enter the requested password to continue.

When you see the utilities window, you have started up from macOS Recovery.

2. Decide whether to erase (format) your disk

You probably don't need to erase, unless you're selling, trading in, or giving away your Mac, or you have an issue that requires you to erase. If you need to erase before installing macOS, select Disk Utility from the Utilities window, then click Continue. Learn more about when and how to erase.

3. Install macOS

When you're ready to reinstall macOS, choose Reinstall macOS from the Utilities window. Then click Continue and follow the onscreen instructions. You will be asked to choose a disk on which to install.

  • If the installer asks to unlock your disk, enter the password you use to log in to your Mac.
  • If the installer doesn't see your disk, or it says that it can't install on your computer or volume, you might need to erase your disk first.
  • If the installer is for a different version of macOS than you expected, learn about macOS Recovery exceptions.
  • If the installer offers you the choice between installing on Macintosh HD or Macintosh HD - Data, choose Macintosh HD.

Please allow installation to complete without putting your Mac to sleep or closing its lid. During installation, your Mac might restart and show a progress bar several times, and the screen might be empty for minutes at a time.

If your Mac restarts to a setup assistant, but you're selling, trading in, or giving away your Mac, press Command-Q to quit the assistant without completing setup. Then click Shut Down. When the new owner starts up the Mac, they can use their own information to complete setup.

macOS Recovery exceptions

The version of macOS offered by macOS Recovery might vary in some cases:

  • If macOS Sierra 10.12.4 or later has never been installed on this Mac, Option-Command-R installs the macOS that came with your Mac, or the closest version still available. And Shift-Option-Command-R isn't available.
  • If you erased your entire disk instead of just the startup volume on that disk, macOS Recovery might offer only the macOS that came with your Mac, or the closest version still available. You can upgrade to a later version afterward.
  • If your Mac has the Apple T2 Security Chip and you never installed a macOS update, Option-Command-R installs the latest macOS that was installed on your Mac.
  • If you just had your Mac logic board replaced during a repair, macOS Recovery might offer only the latest macOS that is compatible with your Mac.

If you can't get macOS Recovery to offer the installer you want, you might be able to use one of the other ways to install macOS.

Other ways to install macOS

  • You can also install macOS from the App Store or Software Update preferences. If you can't install macOS Catalina, you might be able to install an earlier macOS, such as macOS Mojave, High Sierra, Sierra, El Capitan, or Yosemite.
  • Or create a bootable installer disk, then use that disk to install macOS on your Mac or another Mac.

Welcome! We are excited that you want to learn Docker.

This page contains step-by-step instructions on how to get started with Docker. We also recommend the video walkthrough from Dockercon 2020.

The Docker Quickstart training module teaches you how to:

  1. Set up your Docker environment (on this page)

Docker concepts

Docker is a platform for developers and sysadmins to build, run, and shareapplications with containers. The use of containers to deploy applicationsis called containerization. Containers are not new, but their use for easilydeploying applications is.

Containerization is increasingly popular because containers are:

  • Flexible: Even the most complex applications can be containerized.
  • Lightweight: Containers leverage and share the host kernel,making them much more efficient in terms of system resources than virtual machines.
  • Portable: You can build locally, deploy to the cloud, and run anywhere.
  • Loosely coupled: Containers are highly self sufficient and encapsulated,allowing you to replace or upgrade one without disrupting others.
  • Scalable: You can increase and automatically distribute container replicas across a datacenter.
  • Secure: Containers apply aggressive constraints and isolations to processes without any configuration required on the part of the user.

Images and containers

Fundamentally, a container is nothing but a running process,with some added encapsulation features applied to it in order to keep it isolated from the host and from other containers.One of the most important aspects of container isolation is that each container interacts with its own private filesystem; this filesystem is provided by a Docker image.An image includes everything needed to run an application - the code or binary,runtimes, dependencies, and any other filesystem objects required.

Containers and virtual machines

A container runs natively on Linux and shares the kernel of the hostmachine with other containers. It runs a discrete process, taking no more memorythan any other executable, making it lightweight.

By contrast, a virtual machine (VM) runs a full-blown “guest” operatingsystem with virtual access to host resources through a hypervisor. In general,VMs incur a lot of overhead beyond what is being consumed by your application logic.

Set up your Docker environment

Download and install Docker Desktop

Docker Desktop is an easy-to-install application for your Mac or Windows environment that enables you to start coding and containerizing in minutes. Docker Desktop includes everything you need to build, run, and share containerized applications right from your machine.

Follow the instructions appropriate for your operating system to download and install Docker Desktop.


Test Docker version

After you’ve successfully installed Docker Desktop, open a terminal and run docker --version to check the version of Docker installed on your machine.

Test Docker installation

  1. Test that your installation works by running the hello-world Docker image:

  2. Run docker image ls to list the hello-world image that you downloaded to your machine.

  3. List the hello-world container (spawned by the image) which exits after displaying its message. If it is still running, you do not need the --all option:


At this point, you’ve installed Docker Desktop on your development machine, and ran a quick test to ensure you are set up to build and run your first containerized application.

For information on how to build and run your first containerized application using Node.js, go to Build your Node.js image.
