💽 Installation

Download from GitHub Releases and install it.


It is recommended to install Motrix using the installation package (Motrix-Setup-x.y.z.exe) to ensure a complete experience, such as associating torrent files, capturing magnet links, etc.

If you prefer the portable version, you can use scoop (need Windows 7+) to install Motrix.

scoop bucket add extras
scoop install motrix


The macOS users can install Motrix using brew cask, thanks to PR of Mitscherlich.

brew update && brew cask install motrix


You can download the AppImage (for all Linux distributions) or snap to install Motrix, see GitHub/release for more Linux installation package formats.

If you want to build from source code, please read the Build section.


The latest version of Motrix AppImage requires you to manually perform desktop integration. Please check the documentation of AppImageLauncher .

Desktop Integration Since electron-builder 21 desktop integration is not a part of produced AppImage file. AppImageLauncher is the recommended way to integrate AppImages.

Tips for v1.5.10

The tray may not display the indicator normally, which makes it inconvenient to exit the application.

Please unchecked Preferences--Basic Settings--Hide App Menu (Windows & Linux Only), click Save & Apply. Then click "Exit" in the File menu to exit the application.

Please update to v1.5.12 and above, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + q to quickly exit the application.


For Arch Linux users, Motrix is available in aur, thanks to the maintainer weearc.

Run the following command to install:

yay motrix

Motrix may need to run with sudo for the first time in Linux because there is no permission to create the download session file (/var/cache/aria2.session).
