If you want to install and use the Yahoo Finance app on your PC or Mac, you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We have worked diligently to help you understand how to use Yahoo Finance for your computer in 4 simple steps below:

Step 1: Download an Android emulator for PC and Mac

Ok. First things first. If you want to use the application on your computer, first visit the Mac store or Windows AppStore and search for either the Bluestacks app or the Nox App . Most of the tutorials on the web recommends the Bluestacks app and I might be tempted to recommend it too, because you are more likely to easily find solutions online if you have trouble using the Bluestacks application on your computer. You can download the Bluestacks Pc or Mac software here

Step 2: Install the emulator on your PC or Mac

Now that you have downloaded the emulator of your choice, go to the Downloads folder on your computer to locate the emulator or Bluestacks application.
Once you have found it, click it to install the application or exe on your PC or Mac computer.
Now click Next to accept the license agreement.
Follow the on screen directives in order to install the application properly.
If you do the above correctly, the Emulator app will be successfully installed.

Step 3: Yahoo Finance for PC - Windows 7/8 / 8.1 / 10

Now, open the Emulator application you have installed and look for its search bar. Once you found it, type Yahoo Finance in the search bar and press Search. Click on Yahoo Finance application icon. A window of Yahoo Finance on the Play Store or the app store will open and it will display the Store in your emulator application. Now, press the Install button and like on an iPhone or Android device, your application will start downloading. Now we are all done.
You will see an icon called "All Apps".
Click on it and it will take you to a page containing all your installed applications.
You should see the Yahoo Finance icon. Click on it and start using the application.

Step 4: Yahoo Finance for Mac OS

Hi. Mac user!
The steps to use Yahoo Finance for Mac are exactly like the ones for Windows OS above. All you need to do is install the Nox Application Emulator or Bluestack on your Macintosh. The links are provided in step one

  • Used to be 5 star (before the recent versions broke things)

    By mkazimer
    I really liked this app and its features, but the recent versions broke a couple things, so I rated 3 stars (at best) right now. 1. The app used to total up my portfolio based on the share quantity and basis prices I have entered. But now all I get is a bunch of black/red/green dots where my portfolio total should be. I tried pull-down refreshes and app restarts, but no luck. I cannot get a portfolio total anymore, which was a key feature for me. 2. When I scroll down to read additional news headlines, the scroll pane jumps around every few seconds as I am reading the headlines. This is really annoying. Both these recent issues really impact the app’s usefulness, so now I can rarely stand using it.
  • Changes Vastly Improved; Need Watchlist Alerts

    By SuperReviewerPowers
    Every morning I wake up at 6am, reach over for my iPad and use Yahoo Finance (YF) to do a few trades, and go back to sleep. Made a few thousand $ without ever getting out of bed! Really like the live real-time price feeds, technical indicators, news feeds and videos, and some of the YF content. Prefer CNBC, Bloomberg, and Fox. YF talking heads are getting better, but I really hate the giggly girly nonsense when they obviously are self absorbed look-at-me fluffs. Same goes for the dudes. Deliver relevant business content in a no nonsense concise manner please. A glaring miss is the ability to set notification Alerts for stocks on my watch lists. Prices high and low, bull bear trends, ratings up and downgrades, dividend events and dates, relevant breaking news are the minimum Alerts I need. YF is very usable now, so I hope they keep it that way while making improvements. I used to really really hate the previous YF versions and hope those days are finally over.
  • They Screwed It Up!! (v. 3,34,0)

    By Zootooz
    This latest version adds all holding lists to get a total for “My Holdings”. This takes no account of how my lists are organized, and results in a totally incorrect number. My own lists include a) My IRA, b) My total brokerage accounts (IRA + non IRA), c) My wife’s IRA, and d) Combined IRA {i.e. a+c). So Yahoo Finance’s idea of what “My Holdings” are, triple counts my IRA and double counts my wife’s IRA. There seems to be no way to eliminate this bogus addition. My guess is that there are lots of people in similar situations, with lists that duplicate certain holdings for various reasons, so my recommendation would be either to get rid of this “feature” or somehow make it optional or controllable. Edit Addition: I just noticed that the associated Widget only gives “Portfolio Total”, which as noted above is totally bogus if you don’t organize your lists the way the developer thinks you ought to. There is apparently no way to modify or customize the data shown to reflect the true total. This makes it totally useless unlike the limited utility of the lists on the App itself. So I deducted one star. Yahoo Finance, please fix these issues!! Only then will I consider giving it 5 stars. Thank you.
  • Ridiculous

    By Bing Dicklepuss
    iPhone X 1.) New chart view has potential, but should never have been released in this sorry state. 5-day chart view has ONE-DAY resolution. I.e. if you look at a 5-day chart you only see 5 points, one for each day. That’s ridiculous. Resolution needs to be at least 10x, but more like 100x the period, whenever possible. There’s no excuse to put out such a Garbage product! For years, yahoo’s Old charts had issues with very low resolutions on some time scales. NEVER show less than 100 data points in a chart, and you’ll be doing pretty well. 2.) “Conversations” A.) cannot reply to lowest reply Tap to reply to a conversation thread. Scroll down to last existing reply. Can not scroll low enough to tap “reply to” to the last reply. It is out of frame. B.) cannot copy post to clipboard The app automatically unselects selected text very quickly. Only if you are extremely fast, can you highlight the text you want, tap it, and then tap “copy” before it gets unselected. This is a problem because you can’t edit your old posts. If you see a typo after posting, you have to copy and create a new post to fix it.

  • Too many push notifications and not easy to stop.

    By look159
    You make it difficult to stop the excessive notifications. My alternative is to work with your competitors.
  • App says not available try again later

    By bbbygbear
    Been trying for 3 days to open this app but to no avail. Help!!!
  • New version is a disaster!

    By Jayoppa25
    To be clear, I gave the previous version a 5 stars. However, this new version is a total catastrophe! Let me just simply point out a few drawbacks: 1. Comment sections are destroyed! Somehow I can’t even give people thumbs up after this update. Every time I try to give one, it disappears after I leave the page. 2. GIF section is full of bugs! In this new version, it seems to prevent users from searching a GIF with multiple key words! The search will only work with one key word. 3. Comment layout are getting worse and more complicated. Why can’t you just put ‘thumb up’ and ‘thumb down’ symbols right next to the ‘reply’? Now there are lots of blank space between the two and it’s not UI/UX friendly. 4. Why does it have to show ‘1 person is typing’? It sometimes pops out from nowhere, and it is annoying. Again, not UI/UX friendly. 5. Sometimes when I click ‘view more data’, it directs me to ‘view all posts’. It gotta be some kind of bugs, please fix it. If possible, I would much much prefer the older version. I chose to update because last few updates were great - but this time, it is a nightmare.
  • Great app 2 problem

    By NitrousXpress
    I love Yahoo finance but I have two problems. One is on the app if I like anyone’s post and refresh the page my like is gone they don’t count. Please fix this bug! But on the webpage it works. The other problem is why do we get news notification but none when someone reply’s to our Comment?! Please add an option to see Replies or comments on your post, Google and Instagram and every other social media shouldn’t have an advantage on being able to see comments or getting notifications! I’ll change to 5 stars if this ever gets fixed but please consider. You would have a lot more active people if people knew when they received a reply because of they weren’t gonna check the app it would be a reason to hop on and start replying.

  • Issue with real time quotes

    By nsuresh67
    Was my favorite app. New updates have screwed up some functionalities. My main issue is that many quotes are not real time. Even after market close the numbers are changing. I will be happy to send capture video, if that would help.
  • Numbers gone...

    By correct your code
    With this new version, I have no totals on my iPad! Test it before you install an update into the world!
  • Recently unusable and completely awful

    By ZFC10
    This app was to be great. For the last couple months it has been the absolute worst. The prices shown are not accurate, they jump around and are usually 1% off of the actual real time prices. This is not due to normal market changes either, I have checked. In the watchlist the app shows one price, then when you open an individual stock it will jump to a completely different price often 100bps different then what it’s showing on the watch list. This has made this app complete irrelevant and useless. What good is a stock app that doesn’t show accurate prices? Complete and utter joke. I expect better. I no longer use this laughable app.
