Running Microsoft Windows applications on Linux is one of the tasks that can be difficult for many users because they are incompatible by the file system, Linux handles ext3, ext4 while Windows handles NTFS, this prevents the applications from being run with normal..

 

To correct this, we have the PlayOnLinux utility which is an application whose purpose is to be able to run Windows 10 applications in Linux as if we were on a Windows computer. In this way we can easily open a Windows application in Linux.

 

PlayOnLinux features
Among its characteristics we find:

 

  • It's totally free
  • PlayOnLinux is based on Wine so we are installing a program full of functions and features

  • It has a library with more than 100 programs and applications to use in Linux

 

 

 

Without further ado, let's see how to install PlayOnLinux in Ubuntu 20.04 and thus have a wide portfolio to use Windows applications..
