Thank You Paul, also can you share me the installation manual and the different features it covers.Also I want to know can we use the Docker containers directly to rancher or we need to migrate them to rancher to use it.

Yes you can use your docker containers. Both Rancher and Rancher Desktop have a Kubernetes distro at their core. Rancher allows you to use any cncf certified k8s distro but also includes RKE, K3S, & RKE2. Rancher Desktop includes k3s because of its lightweight but 100% kubernetes functional. Perfect for desktop and edge devices. Also included with Rancher Desktop Installation is Docker moby.

Ok, I was using the nerdctl command to pull an image and in the images list I can see it so how can I run that image to form a container any specific command is there for nerdctl.
using nerdctl pull <imagename> I can able to pull the image but I need to run as a container.
with docker everything works..
Also when I am using docker I can see the image, But I cant see the container in Rancher desktop UI.
Can I able to see that ?

@refined-scooter-11467 Please start other threads for your technical questions to get the widest visibility and response. I would also like to make my original response about support more clear. Both Rancher Desktop and Rancher Server are really & truly Open Source Software (OSS) projects, not just "FREE software". The difference is often misunderstood. Truly OSS means that Enterprise level support, if and when it is offered by SUSE will always be an OPTIONAL add-on that will provide you are more reliable and thorough support experience. You will always be free to use the OSS and leverage the community as described for help.

@refined-scooter-11467 you should be able to run your image with
nerdctl run ...
just as with
docker
. If it doesn't work, please show the commands you run, and their output, so somebody can see how it failed and maybe point out the reason. As Paul mentioned, please start a new thread for each new topic, to get more visibility.
The Rancher Desktop UI unfortunately doesn't have a way to view normal containers yet. It does have a cluster dashboard, but that only works for containers managed by Kubernetes. You can list the running containers with
nerdctl ps
