Chocolatey – a software management system for Windows


Chocolatey ( is a software manager for Windows. There are almost 5000 packages. The one you use are certainly in there. All mine are.

Install choco from an administrator command line:

@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(''))" && SET "PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%chocolateybin"

Then run installs like:

choco install -y ccleaner contains a list  of all the packages

I recommend the GUI:

choco install -y chocolateygui chocolatey-core.extension

But I like the command line, too.

And I like, that you can update all your installed packages at once (yes they need to be installed by choc first):

choco upgrade -y
