The Tango Desktop App is another way to capture high-resolution images of your process for both Mac (ARM & X64) and Windows 10/11. It will auto-generate high-resolution images, highlighting the steps within a process. It is compatible with most downloadable software that is up-to-date with your device's current software version.

  • It will generate an editable Workflow that will show up alongside your other Workflows in the Tango Web App (

  • When working between your browser and your desktop, the Desktop App will capture both (including Chrome settings!). Please note, when working within the extension, you cannot capture on your Desktop.

  • Desktop is a Tango Pro feature. Upgrade today for access to Tango Desktop.

How is the Tango Desktop app different than the Tango extension?

  • Workflows captured with the Desktop app are not compatible with Guidance.

  • While the Desktop app captures clicks and keyboard shortcuts in clear screenshots, the step descriptions may be less precise.

  • Tango Desktop does not offer Live Blur.

  • Tango Desktop will capture a step when you drag and drop an element or use a keyboard shortcut (ex. "Cmd + c").

  • Workflows in Tango Desktop can be started, stopped, paused, and resumed with special keyboard shortcuts to maximize your speed.
