How Do I Get Started With Tails Linux?
Getting started with Tails Linux is simple. Follow these steps:
- Go to the Tails website and download the ISO file for your preferred version of Tails, which will be a file with an extension of .iso. You can burn this file to a DVD or USB stick using one of many free tools available online (like this one).
- Install your chosen method of installation either DVD or USB on your computer by following its instructions in their entirety (this may vary depending on what type of device you’re using). If you’re installing from an ISO image onto an existing computer, simply follow whatever steps are listed for “Burning an Image” in Windows 7 or later versions; otherwise follow those provided by whichever program was used to create said disc/stick from scratch. Once installed properly onto either medium (DVD or USB), boot up into Tails using either option. You’ll notice that when starting up from either media type there’s no option provided within the desktop settings menu where it says “Choose Language” or anything similar; rather than choosing between languages when first starting out simply click the “Use My Language” button located just below where language would normally appear after clicking Start button on Desktop Mode screen shown above right side panel section labeled “Starting Up.”

The best way to install the latest version of Tails is by downloading it, then using a USB stick to install it. To start with, you’ll need to download the latest version of Tails from their website (https://tails.boum.org/download). You can do this from any computer and then transfer it over to your computer when you’re ready to install it.
Once that’s done, all you have left is to plug in your USB stick and install Tails onto it! This will take about 10 minutes depending on how fast your internet connection is and what kind of hardware you’re using but once done will leave behind an encrypted operating system on which all other activities will run inside that virtual machine environment until shutdown or restarting again manually before logging out first if possible because otherwise there may be lingering traces left behind even after unmounting partitions etcetera.
