Say Hello to Zorin OS Pro
Built for professionals, power users, and those who want to unleash the full potential of their computer.
We’re excited to introduce the newest edition of Zorin OS. Zorin OS Pro brings together the best apps and most advanced features, so you can unleash the full potential of your computer to do your greatest work. It comes bundled with our technical support service so you can get up and running smoothly. And every purchase helps to fund the development of the Zorin OS project for the benefit of all.
Choose from all 8 desktop layouts in Zorin Appearance
The Zorin Appearance app is extended to include all 8 desktop layouts in Zorin OS Pro. It features 4 Premium layouts – macOS-like, Windows 11-like, Windows Classic-like, and Ubuntu-like layouts – in addition to the 4 standard layouts included in Zorin OS Core. That way, you can use the desktop you’re familiar with or simply customize your computer to how you like it.
The Windows 11-like desktop layout is brand-new in Zorin OS 16 Pro. It features a modern and streamlined UI that adapts well to computers with touchpads, mice, or touchscreens. The new grid menu, activities overview button, and taskbar icons are placed front and center for easy access and effortless navigation on screens of all sizes.
Professional-grade creative suite
Create with the same apps the pros use. Zorin OS Pro includes an advanced video editor, Photoshop-compatible image editor, illustration software, audio workstation, animation software, and the same 3D graphics & effects software used by Hollywood studios, just to name a few. With tools this powerful, your imagination is the only limit.
Advanced productivity software
To help get the most out of your work, Zorin OS Pro comes pre-loaded with apps and tools to help you be more productive.
Share your mouse and keyboard across computers
Use one mouse and keyboard to control all of your computers with the built-in Barrier app. Simply move the cursor to the edge of the screen to switch between devices seamlessly. It even shares the clipboard, so you can copy text from one computer to paste into a document on another computer.
Write, sketch, scribble and speak your notes
Take notes or annotate images & PDF documents effortlessly with the Xournal++ app. Pick up a pen to write naturally, draw diagrams with automatic shape recognition, or simply type with your keyboard. It can even record audio from the microphone while taking notes, so you can remember everything from your meetings or lectures.
Cast your desktop to the big screen
The Network Displays app allows you to share your desktop with other displays seamlessly and wirelessly. It connects over your local network and works with Wi-Fi Display or Miracast-compatible devices, like most modern TVs or Wireless Display Adapters. It’s perfect for playing back videos at home or showing your presentation at the office without needing to fiddle with cables.
…and many other productivity apps
- 2D & 3D CAD
- Password Manager
- Accounting Software
- Mind Maps
- Screen Recorder
- E-book Reader
- Break Timer
…just to name a few.
