  • Windows 10 (recommended). Older versions may show minor interface glitches, but SuperMemo should still be usable even in Windows XP. Ask for a trial version if you want to be sure. In Windows 7 use Windows Aero scheme
  • 1 GB memory
  • 20 MB free disk space (more recommended for larger collections of learning material; for example, Advanced English without sounds requires 140 MB)
  • screen resolution 1200x800 (some dialogs may be hard to use at 800x600)
  • Internet Explorer 11 (recommended). Older versions back to Internet Explorer 8 should also work showing minor incompatibilities in parsing HTML or interpreting stylesheets. IE 8 is recommended for Windows XP. In newer Windows, you will get best results with the latest available version of IE (with all recent security updates)
