arduino will not upload program

i just install arduino 1.8.5 but it will not upload can anyone help with a suggestion

Yes. I suggest you give a few more details about what you installed it on, what sort of board(s) you are trying to upload to and exactly what errors you are seeing when it doesn't work.

Otherwise you'll just get responses like "It works fine for me" (it does !).

I think that I am having similar problems but for me it just tells me that it has timed out. Does anyone know what to do or any forms that may be of help? thanks

You both need to supply many more details to get a reasonable answer.
Would you both please read this post first.

Then add the many missing factors.
