SOS Recommended System Requirements

Switched-On Schoolhouse® Recommended System Requirements


Be sure your computer at least meets the minimum requirements for installing and running SOS Home Edition. For optimal use, the requirements in the Optimal Performance column are recommended.


Supported operating systems: 
Only English language versions of Microsoft® Windows® 7, 8.1 and 10 are supported. Switched-On Schoolhouse is not supported on Windows RT, XP, Vista, or Windows 8.


Supported browser
Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE) is the only supported browser for SOS. It is not included in the SOS installation so it needs to be installed by you.
