Windows 10 now has a Linux-style Packet Manager

Microsoft keeps adding interesting developer and enthusiast features to Windows 10. The latest new optional feature is called Windows Package Manager. After installation, a preview version of the tool is accessible in Powershell via the "winget" command. It's somewhat similar to the apt-get command in Linux. For example, if you want to install Spotify you simply type "winget install spotify" and the tool handles all the rest. The only drawback is that this only works if the name of the software you want to install is listed in Microsoft's repository.
To start using it, you’ll first have to head over to Microsoft’s Github repository and install the Windows Package Manager Preview. Once installed, open up Microsoft Windows Terminal or a command line. If you open up the command line, type ‘powershell’ and hit enter to enter the enhanced command line. Once you’re in Powershell, type in ‘winget’ to see a list of commands. All it takes to install Putty, VLC, Spotify, Notepad++ is typing “winget install putty” or “winget install spotify.”
