How can I watch The Roku Channel on my desktop computer?  There are times when I want to watch on my computer instead of my TV.  Help, please and thank you.

Probably not a priority for Roku.

@DianneXSinger 

If you are using a standard desktop monitor, chances are you may be limited to simply watching the Roku Channel as indicated by @renojim by navigating to the link he provided.  If you are using a monitor with an HDMI input or using a television with an HDMI input as your monitor, then you can connect a Roku device to it in same manner as your other television and switch from "Display" to "HDMI" to watch the Roku. 

Unless you are using dual monitors, you cannot use the Roku and the desktop (for computing) at same time.  The desktop portion of the computer cannot/does not factor in to the Roku operation, it is the monitor portion.
