Installing Software

The Applications tab shows both installed software and software that has not already been installed on your computer, but is available for you to install.

1. Click the application in the list to see an overview of that software, including its description, version and if a restart is required. 

2. Click Install to begin the installation process. You can monitor the installation process on this tab or from the Installation status tab. 

3. After installation, follow instructions as to whether you need to restart your computer.

4. If the installation fails through Software Center, please reboot your computer and try this process again.

NOTE: If you have multiple applications to install, you will need to repeat the process for each title.
