I am new at this and I don't know how to start indesign cs6 from my computer.
Is the program correctly installed? It should start the same as any other application that is installed.
Or perhaps you are able to start ID and don't know how to create a document? Or is it crashing during startup?
Please give us complete details of what is happening, including your Operating System and the exact wording of any error messages you receive so that we can do more to help you.
