Step 1

If you already have it installed make sure you get it updated to the latest version (1.0.41331.0 or higher)

Step 2

Fire up a PowerShell window & run Winget Show to list all available packages

The 1st time I ran this on May 19th, the listing had 146 packages, only 2 days later…

Today May 21st we’re up to 194!

Example: to install Power Toys

run WinGet install ‘Power Toys’

Easy!

The build in search option make sit easier to find the package you need n this rapid growing repo

Enjoy!
