General

A desktop environment (DE) is an implementation of the desktop metaphor made of a bundle of programs which share a common graphical user interface (GUI).
It is sometimes described as a graphical shell.

With manjaro you can use many desktop environments. Both Official and Community ISO's of various DE's are available.
You can download them here:

Including: Architect, Gnome, KDE, and XFCE.
Including: Awesome, bspwm, Budgie, Cinnamon, Deepin, i3, LXDE, LXQt, MATE, and Openbox.

If you are feeling adventurous and want to install additional DEs or WMs you can reference these guides:
