To install and activate Polypane, follow these steps.

Step 1: Download and install Install Polypane

Install Polypane by downloading the installer for your operating system and running it.

Polypane is available for Windows 10, MacOS (A universal app for Catalina and up, with support for both Intel and M1/Apple Silicon) and Linux (.deb and appImage).

Step 2: Request license

When first opening Polypane, you need to request a license key for the device. Fill in the e-mail address you signed up with and we'll send you an email with the key. Each license key is only valid for a single device.

Step 3: Verify license

Copy the license into Polypane and verify the license. After this, your copy of Polypane is activated.

Step 4: Ready to go

Pick your first set of panes (you can change these later on) and get started. The regular Polypane interface will now be shown on startup.

Step 5: Follow along with the getting started guide

The getting started guide in Polypane will help you understand the interface as you use it.

Step 6: Other machines

You can install Polypane on multiple devices. Now that you've activated your first device, you can install it on other devices too.
