Download Ubuntu Live: The Fastest and Easiest Way to Try Ubuntu


Download Ubuntu Live: A Complete Guide




Have you ever wanted to try a different operating system without installing it on your computer? Or maybe you need to fix a broken system or recover some files from a damaged hard drive. Or perhaps you just want to have a portable and versatile OS that you can use on any machine. If so, then you might want to download Ubuntu Live.


What is Ubuntu Live and why use it?




Ubuntu Live is a version of Ubuntu, a popular and free Linux-based operating system, that you can run directly from a USB stick or a DVD without installing it on your computer. It is also known as a live CD or a live USB.

With Ubuntu Live, you can do almost anything you can do with an installed Ubuntu, such as:



  • Safely browse the internet without storing any history or cookie data



  • Access and edit files stored on your computer or USB stick



  • Create new office suite documents and save them remotely



  • Fix broken configurations and get a computer running again



To use Ubuntu Live, you need to download the Ubuntu image file and create a bootable USB drive or burn it to a DVD. You can then boot your computer from the USB or DVD and enjoy Ubuntu.


How to download Ubuntu Live image file




The first step to use Ubuntu Live is to download the Ubuntu image file from the official website. The image file is a compressed file that contains all the data and instructions needed to run Ubuntu.


To download the Ubuntu image file, follow these steps:



  • Go to [Ubuntu Desktop](^2^) in your web browser.



  • Select the version of Ubuntu you want to download. You can choose between the latest version (23.04) or the long-term support version (22.04.2 LTS). The LTS version is more stable and has five years of security and maintenance updates.



  • Click the green Download button next to the version you want.



  • If you want to support the development of Ubuntu, you can enter a donation amount or skip this step by clicking Not now, take me to the download.



  • The download will start automatically. The file name will be something like ubuntu-23.04-desktop-amd64.iso or ubuntu-22.04.2-desktop-amd64.iso depending on the version you chose. The file size will be around 3 GB.



  • Save the file to a location you can easily find later.
