TROMjaro can replicate most of the well known OS layouts out there. Open the Layout Switcher app and choose the way your system will look like.

CHOOSE a theme

Open the Theme Switcher and select between light/dark mode with 10 accent colors.
Or install any custom theme that will work with pretty much any Linux app out there.
extremely customizable:
The bellow examples replicate some of the most well-known desktops, and are fully done with the default TROMjaro install . We've only installed the icon/themes via Add/Remove Software. The rest is right click , drag, move, and do. Super easy!

easy to use and manage

Our desktop layout is very simple and (we hope) very intuitive. Everything is 'in your face' so you don't have to look around for settings, volume, workspaces, apps, and such.
Despite providing multiple different layouts via Layout Switcher, the principle remains the same.
There is one single settings manager to rule them all! And we've added plenty of options to it. Change the theme, icons, cursor; tweak the touchscreen/touchpad gestures, map your mouse buttons or change the mouse gestures. And if your hardware is supported you can even tweak the RGB lights for your keyboard/mouse.

This is the one place to go when you need to tweak your system.
software manager
There is one single place that you have to use to install/remove/update your software: Add/Remove Software. It has categories and it is very simple to use. Search for an app, then click install. The system will make sure to notify you when an update is available for that app.

Therefore, your apps and your system will always be up to date without you worrying about it!
automatic backups of the system
Whenever TROMjaro detects that the core components of the system need an upgrade, it will automatically backup your entire system before doing the upgrades. This way, in case your system fails to work, you can easily restore it. Via System Backups you can tweak these settings at your liking, to schedule backups anytime you want.
ability to save sessions
Imagine you have several workspaces and each of them has a bunch of apps opened. Word documents, video players, files, etc.. You want to reboot your system but do not want to lose these. In TROMjaro, every time you reboot/shutdown your system you have the ability to save the session, so next time you boot up everything will be back where it should.
The Heads Up Display (HUD) is an immensely useful feature. Press ALT when the app is in focus, and if the app supports it, you can quickly search through the entire menu and go exactly where you want to. As an example, if you want to change the image levels in GIMP, you would normally have to browser through the many menus and sub-menus to find it, but with HUD you can find it in a second.
By default, in TROMjaro we have setup some basic gestures for the mouse, touchpad and touch screens, to make your life easier.

master the files

Super fast, simple, yet powerful photo gallery manager and viewer. Crop, rotate, sort, change colors, luminosity, make galleries, add tags, etc..
Watch any type of video files with our built-in video player. Create playlists, select subtitles, audio tracks, and much more.
With the powerful LibreOffice pretty much any document file can be opened, created, edited. Spreadsheets, PDF files, Word, and more.
Access a world of file decentralization and sharing, and download/stream video/audio files even before they finish downloading.

control the web

Since most humans spend most of the time online, then the browser should be your friend and protector!
browse the web without trading
We customized Firefox to make it trade-free, to block most of the online trades: data collection, tracking, ads, geo-blocking, etc.. Everyone should be able to access any website (or scientific papers) without trading anything in return. On top of that we think people should be allowed to download videos, audio files and photos from any website or save websites for later or offline use, and so we added the tools for users to do that.

We've also added our own instance of SearX as the default search engine, so that anyone can search the web without restrictions, ads, trackers and the like.
