Fugo allows you to display your digital signage content with a wide range of supported Windows devices - tablets, media players boxes, and sticks.

This guide will walk you through how to set up Fugo’s digital signage software on a Windows device, as well as how to add and publish your content.

A few key features of running the Fugo app on Windows

  • Fugo will auto-start upon booting up your screen

  • The Fugo app will go full screen automatically

  • The Fugo app will auto-update itself

  • Content screenshotting works smoothly, so you'll always have a nice playback preview of your content

Let’s get started!

1.Set up your Windows desktop or media player for digital signage

1.1 Turn on your device, go to the browser and open the URL for our app - https://fugo.ai/dist/fugo.exe

1.2 Click on the file link to install the app.

1.3 Once you’ve installed the Fugo Windows app, the Fugo player will start up. You’ll see a pairing code on screen:

2. Set up a Fugo account & pair your device

2.1 If you haven’t already registered on Fugo CMS, go to http://fugo.ai/app to start your 14-day free trial.

2.2 After successfully logging in, you can click Add Screens on the welcome page. Alternatively, you can navigate to the Screens page in the top navigation bar.

2.3 Enter the PIN from the Fugo player window into the space provided.

2.4 To finish the pairing process, give your screen a name and add a location.

💡 We recommend you name your player something relevant such as 68 Lombard Street or Clapham Coffee Shop. For my example, I’ve named my screen “Fugo HQ.” The address should be your screen’s location.

2.5 Your screen will now be listed on your Screens page:

Congratulations, you’ve added your screen! Here, have this cake 🍰 to celebrate!

Now you’re ready to start publishing content. We’ll cover that in the next section.

3. Publish content with Fugo CMS

With your player all set up, you’re ready to give it something to play!

Fugo allows you to display several types of content:

You can use our Design Studio to create screen-ready content like digital posters & menu boards without having to leave Fugo for a 3rd party tool - learn how here.

When your content is ready to go on screen, you can use our friendly playlist builder to publish your content - learn how here.

Enable Automatic Login

Note: You’ll need to enable automatic login into Windows if you see a password input prompt on your device screen after rebooting your device.

You can do that in two steps:

  1. Disabling Windows Hello (instructions here)

  2. Turning on auto-login (instructions here - make sure to uncheck “users must enter password”)
