Can I install new apps or software?

There are several apps, already installed on your computer, and also others that are easy to install if you internet connection. To find more apps, click on the More Apps icon on yof our desktop. This will open the App Center.


You can browse through the App Center’s categories to find new apps. Once you’ve found an app you’d like, click on it and then click on the green Add to Desktop button. Some apps in the App Center will require an internet connection for you to download and install them, and you’ll find an Install App button next to them instead of the green Add to Desktop button. If you have an internet connection, just click on the Install App button, and your app will download and install so you can add it to your desktop.


Unfortunately, you cannot install Linux apps directly from the internet - you can only add apps that are already in our App Center, and that are based on Flatpak.

You can also download apps from Flathub if you have an internet connection.


If you have a favorite app that you can't find on Endless OS, let us know on our Community. There may be something similar that we can recommend for you, or your suggestion might end up influencing our Product Roadmap.
