Open a Power Shell as an administrator and execute the following commands to download and install Docker:

Install-Module -Name DockerMsftProvider -Repository PSGallery -Force
Install-Package -Name docker -ProviderName DockerMsftProvider

A Windows restart is necessary after the above. Run the following command:

PS C:Windowssystem32>Restart-Computer -Force

The restart will invoke the Windows Updater. Expect a short delay on the reboot.

Test that docker is able to run. Docker service must be set to Automatic and be running.

PS C:Windowssystem32>docker run --rm microsoft/dotnet-samples

You should see a text representation of the Docker Logo. If it displays, all is well.
