    You'd need Windows 8 (or higher) for the app however if you head over to:

    https://web.whatsapp.com

    And scan the QR code with your phone it'd be possible to access it that way depending on your web browser.

    Thanks for your replies and yes I had tried google first but as 20aday said it came up as windows 8 onwards. I've got it on my iphone but wanted to use it on laptop whilst on holiday. I buy a dongle for the laptop.

    Be aware that whatsapp on a computer is not stand alone and needs to connect to your phone to send and recieve messages.

    It just provides a more convenient way to use it when at a computer.

    So from the sound of your post is not likely what you want.

    You need to scan a QR code using the WhatsApp ap on your phone to set it up and after that, as said above, your phone needs to be on with an active internet connection for it to work.

    Whatsapp won't work as you are wanting, there is no app to use it solely on the laptop, the laptop requires your phone to be connected and itself having working data. Basically you type the message on the laptop and it then wirelessly transfers to your phone to send.

    There are other messengers that will work on your laptop without a connected phone, for example Telegram.
