When you need X410, you can effortlessly install it from Microsoft Store. You don't even need to worry about updating X410 to its latest version; Windows automatically keeps it up to date!
Once X410 is installed, it's ready to be used with Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL), SSH X11 forwarding or in any situation that needs an X-Window server. We carefully prepared the default settings in X410 to accommodate most usage cases, but you can of course easily adjust them to fit your workflow.
If you don't want to or cannot use Microsoft Store, we also offer a Standalone version of X410. The Standalone version has the same core functions and features as the Microsoft Store version, but it's packaged in a traditional executable-style installer and doesn't require any Microsoft account.
No longer need to use X410? No problem! Just click 'Uninstall' from the right-click popup menu for X410 on Windows Start screen; X410 is then swiftly removed from your computer.
When you want to use X410 via TCP connections with WSL2 (Windows Subsystem for Linux version 2) or Hyper-V virtual machines, X410 needs to be publicly accessible. Those virtual platforms have their own isolated network and Windows sees them as independent virtual devices even though they all reside in the same computer. However, allowing such public access for X410 can lead to security vulnerabilities as any external computers can also connect to X410 and attack your system.
X410 supports VSOCK that completely eliminates such public access requirement. Even if you decide to use TCP connections, X410 has built-in options for selectively allow TCP connections just for apps running WSL2 and/or Hyper-V virtual machines.
You can improve your system security simply by clicking some options in X410!
Built for Windows 10 and Beyond
X410 is based on the X.Org open-source project that has been actively developed and maintained far before Windows 10. But, unlike the original X.Org project that even supports Windows XP, X410 only supports Windows 10 and later; it doesn't need to worry about compatibility with previous Windows versions, and more importantly, it can freely make use of the new features available in the modern Windows.
X410 is and will be constantly streamlined and optimized just for Windows 10, 11 and beyond!
When you launch X410, it behaves like a normal Windows app rather than a full-blown graphical display server that takes over Windows user interface. X410 also runs snappier and consumes less system resources than traditional X-Window servers.
Are you using a 4K monitor? No problem! X410 natively supports HiDPI screens; it enables you to get crisply scaled Linux GUI apps simply by activating the scaling feature found in popular Linux GUI toolkits such as GTK and Qt.
X410 supports sharing clipboard between Windows and Linux; when you copy text to clipboard in Windows, you can seamlessly paste it to Linux GUI apps and vice versa. Along with plain text, X410 also supports transferring images (BMP/PNG) and HTML text via clipboard.
X410 has two seamless integration modes, Windowed Apps and Desktop. If you want to use your Linux GUI apps individually side by side with normal Windows apps, choose the Windowed Apps mode. In this mode, X410 activates its own window manager for Linux GUI apps that enables you to position and resize the apps along with Windows apps. If you want to experience more immersive and comprehensive Linux GUI desktop environment such as Xfce4, choose the Desktop mode.
Do you want to open Linux GUI apps from the Docker Console in Token2Shell? Just run X410 and you're ready! You don't need to change any setting, simply install your favorite GUI apps and use them as if you're on a Linux machine. X410 also works flawlessly over SSH connections with X11 forwarding.
