Hello,

 

I am attempting to download AdWords Editor from the following link...

 

AdWords Editor

 

However I am met with the message 'An Adwords Editor application is currently not available on your device'. I am running Windows 10, so meet the system requirements.

 

Please could somebody offer their assistance?

 

Thank you

Inexplicably, the site seems to think you're browsing from a mobile device.

If this isn't correct, and you're on a desktop or laptop, you can try the following:

I guess we've all seen stranger things...

 

ApeMan, you're a star. Thank you very much for posting the link.

Turns out the site looks at device display-width. If between 320 and 480 or 768 and 1024 (all in pixels), it assumes the device must be mobile, and shows the message you first saw. My guess then, is that your display resolution width falls in one of those intervals, most likely the latter. It would help if you could confirm one way or the other.

That's very interesting. I was running at 1024 x 768 and I have just switched across to 1152 x 864. I went back to the download page and now the site has accurately detected that I am using a desktop and therefore I was able to download AdWords Editor.

 

I appreciate your assistance with this.
