How to install Windows applications and games in Linux

Tired of running 15-20s of linux commands to get a small job done , if not the keep it up . But if you are then here's how you can install windows applications and games in Linux.

Open Linux terminal  and run these commands one by one : 

i>   sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
ii>  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:noobslab/apps
iii> sudo apt-get update
iv> sudo apt-get install wine:i386
v> sudo apt-get instal playonlinux

Now PlayonLinux would be installed in your Linux system so open up PlayonLinux ,then click on install a program, then select the program you want to install , if you want to install any *.exe file that is not listed then click on "install a program that is not on the list" and manually select the *.exe file and click on install the application and it will start the installation module from the binaries. After the installation is completed , it will prompt for making an additional shortcut on the homescreen (seems helpful) . After that you will get a shortcut on the homescreen just like the Windows. Now you can simply launch the application by clicking it.

Piece of cake , wasn't it ? (only Linux users will understand 😂)
