WingetUI 2.1.1 Released

Posted by

WingetUI is a free graphical user interface for WINGET that lets you install, remove, and update multiple programs at once on Windows 11 or 10 computers.

The primary goal of this free app is to make an easy-to-use user interface for the most popular CLI package managers for Windows 10 and Windows 11, like Winget, Scoop, and Chocolatey.

With WingetUI, you can download, install, update, and remove any software available on the package managers it supports.

You may have heard of package managers like Winget, Scoop, or Chocolatey if you use Windows and like to keep your software up-to-date.

With a single command, these command-line tools let you update, install, or remove the software from different sources.

But not everyone is comfortable with the command-line interface and may prefer a more visual way to manage their packages.

That is where WingetUI comes in.

What is WingetUI?

This graphical user interface for the Windows Package Manager makes it simple to manage package installations using Winget. It is a standalone application that enables users to search for, install, and uninstall software packages without requiring a command-line interface.
