Docker Desktop install on Windows Home. I get the error notification "You must in the docker-users group."

So you can go to compmgmt.msc to add yourself to the group, but Windows Home doesnt have User Groups management like Windows Pro.

How can I do this for Windows Home?


How can I do this for Windows Home?

Run the following command in an elevated command prompt.

net localgroup docker-users username /add

Source: Docker User Group

You can also run a PowerShell command within an elevated PowerShell prompt:

Add-LocalGroupMember -Group "docker-users" -Member "User"

  • There is also a third-party application that could be used here. However, I offer no warranty on the use of that application, only point out that it exists.
