Installation Docker ToolBox vs Docker Desktop Mac Mojave

I work with Mac Mojave and I am doing a training about Docker. I installed Docker Desktop and now I want to install Docker ToolBox. Is it enough to work with Docker to install Docker Desktop or I also need to install Docker Toolbox.

Hi :slight_smile:

Docker toolbox is for machines that do not meet the requirements for Docker Desktop.
But if you have a newer mac ( i guess it is since it runs Mojave ) you should install Docker Desktop.

Check for requirements for mac:


Thanks for the reply.

I read in the documentation that Docker Desktop and Docker Toolbox can coexist.

I installed successfully Docker Desktop but the Docker Toolbox finished with errors.
