You wish to locate DigiDoc4 ID-software on your computer?

Have you installed ID software on your computer and are now unable to locate the DigiDoc4 program in order to use your ID-card?

Launching DigiDoc4 in Windows

In Windows, a shortcut is created on your desktop during the installation of ID-card software unless you have specified otherwise in the course of installation. 

Double click on the DigiDoc4 client icon on your desktop in order to launch it. 

If you do not have an icon on the desktop to click on, there is generally also a shortcut in the START menu. 

Windows 10 users can access the DigiDoc4 client from the Start menu as follows: there is a folder titled ‘ID-card’ under the letter ‘i’. Use your mouse to select the following in the folder:

Windows 8.1 users can locate the DigiDoc4 client icon from Metro view used instead of the classic Windows START menu. In order to open Metro, press the Windows key on your keyboard when in desktop view or drag your mouse to the bottom left corner and click on the icon that appears. If there is no shortcut icon in Metro view, type (you can do it immediately without any additional commands) the keyword ‘ID’ or ‘ID-card’.

After that, the DigiDoc4 client icon will be displayed. Click on it to launch it.

Launching DigiDoc4 in macOS

In macOS, the shortcut icon is installed in the systematic ‘Applications’ catalogue or on your desktop. Click on the DigiDoc4 client icon in order to launch it.

Additionally, you can use the Spotlight search in the upper right corner using the keyword ‘digidoc’.

Launching DigiDoc4 in Linux

The location of the DigiDoc4 client shortcut can differ depending on the Linux version used. The best way is to use systematic search, which comes with every version of Linux. Use the keywords ‘ID’ or ‘ID-card’ when performing the search.

Example: Ubuntu, version 18.04 LTS

The upper left corner features the systematic search shortcut icon (‘Dash home’). Click on it and type in ‘ID’ as the search term. Click on the icon in order to launch the DigiDoc4 client.
