The instruction will be in 2 parts, please tell me when this is done:

  1. Step 1: Visit apps.microsoft.com using any web browser like Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, etc.|
  2. Step 2: Press the “INSTALL” button on the website to start the download of the Telegram Application.
  3. Step 3: It will then automatically re-direct you to the Windows Store App by Microsoft for the Windows device and the download will start in the background.
  4. Step 4: After the download gets finished, the Telegram app will get installed within 2-3 minutes. It will then show up on the all programs list of the Start menu.
Customer Replay

Okay, thanks. I'll give it a try and hopefully I won't have to get back to you.

But I will have to send you the second part.

  1. Step 5: Click on the Telegram app to open it. After the Telegram app opens up, it will show you a “START MESSAGING” button to proceed to login into your Telegram account. Click on the “START MESSAGING” button to proceed to the login window.
  2. Step 6: Then it will show you a QR code for scanning once you click on the “START MESSAGING” button. If you already have a mobile phone with the Telegram account activated in it, then Scan the given QR code that comes on your screen. It will open your chats on your Telegram phone to your Telegram Windows profile.
  3. Step 7: If you don’t have a Telegram account activated on your smartphone, then click on “Or login using your phone number”. It will then ask you for your phone number details and then it will send a unique OTP to your phone number via a message for verification. Enter the OTP to start messaging on Telegram via Windows device just like your smartphone.
    Here it is.

I hit the end of my ability. It said there was no useful info in the QR for me and that I could have a code sent to my program which is not in my phone or to my sms which I requested. Where might that be found?

If you have requested the code from the SMS, it should be found in your SMS on your phone.
If you have the app, Telegram should've texted you in there.

Customer Replay

Where is SMS?

There should be an app on your phone called : 'Messages'

Customer Replay

nothing there.
