Installing Apps
elementary OS comes with <strong>AppCenter</strong>, an app store for open source pay-what-you want apps. Installing a new app from AppCenter is easy:
Open the <strong>AppCenter</strong> app.
Search in the top-right, or browse by category.
Select <strong>Free</strong> or the suggested price next to the app you want to install. To choose a different price, select the <strong>▾</strong> button and select or enter your own price.
You may be asked for your password prior to installing an app.
<em>Note: Some software may not be available from AppCenter. As of elementary OS 5.1 Hera, you can also sideload Flatpak apps from third-party .flatpakref files.</em>
AppCenter includes updates for apps and the operating system itself under the <strong>Installed</strong> tab. Remember to install updates frequently to get the latest features, fixes, and security improvements. For more information related to security patches, read the <a href="">Ubuntu security notices</a>.
System Settings
elementary OS comes with the &quot;System Settings&quot; app that helps you manage settings and preferences for your device. System Settings gives you the ability to adjust things like keyboard shortcuts, display resolution, your wallpaper, and more.
You can quickly find settings you are looking for by typing keywords in the search bar at the top of the window. The contents of the System Settings window will filter down to match your search.
App Settings
Keep in mind that System Settings only deals with the global preferences for elementary OS. Although some apps may also have their own preferences, you will not find them here. Instead, look for them inside the app in question.
