You can bulk install software with the terminal

Last updated on

We’ve all been with a recently bought pc or formatted away from the point of disaster and the need to install every single piece of software is a bummer.

It’s fun at the beginning, I could say, but when a few hours or days are gone it happens that you remember “ah! I need this application too!” over and over again.

Luckily for us, the terminal can our friend and bulk install a big bunch of software. You can do this with a couple of options:

Option 1: (windows only) Winget

Winget is a CLI app from Microsoft. You can also check for apps in API for viewing packages wingetdotrun at

Speaking of a terminal app that can install applications, you can follow this guide to batch install a bunch of software.

Option 2: (windows only, I think 🤔) chocolatey

Same as Winget, you can do the same with chocolatey. Another CLI app.
