Microsoft introduced the new Windows Package Manager earlier this week; Winget for friends. A new package manager incorporated into Windows 10 candidate to be one of the best ways to install the software in the Microsoft operating system. A fast and effective method.
And although its use is quite simple, as we explained, because we do not have to feel intimidated by the terminal, it is true that the lack of an interface complicates its use for the unaccustomed general public.
Winstall shows us in a very visual way all the applications available through the new Windows Package Manager so that installing is basically copy and paste
So that this circumstance is not an impediment, the software engineer Mehedi Hassan, creator of Tweeten, has created Winstall .
How Winstall Works
Winstall is, in a nutshell, a website that allows us to easily and visually navigate through all the available applications using Microsoft’s new Windows Package Manager for Windows 10.
The platform, a web / GUI application, in addition to allowing us to browse among all the available applications and giving us the command to install those that interest us, allows us to generate a single command to install all the applications we want at the same time. Installing our favorite applications on a new computer at the same time is going to be sewing and singing with the Winstall-Winget combo.

To obtain the command that will allow us to install an application, simply search for it using the search engine on the main Winstall page or by browsing the set of available applications. Once located, we access your particular page and copy your command. As simple as that.
To get a single command through which to install several applications, we will choose to go directly to the page that brings them all together, we will select the ones that interest us and when they are all checked, click on the Generate script button. The resulting command will allow us to install said software using the package manager at a stroke.
Hassan says that he has developed this web application in just a couple of days, so it is possible that we will find details to polish. However, it is an open-source project and anyone who wants to can contribute via GitHub. For now, he will continue to improve Winstall.
