Software: Picolino’s Windows starter pack

1 minute read

Windows is an operating system without useful built-in software. So after every Windows reinstall you need to manually install all required software.

Here is an installation-script of useful software that I use for almost any type of tasks.

Note that you need to launch all commands below through admin shell!


To install all required software with one script we gonna use windows package manager (NOT YOU) - Chocolatey.

You can install it by using this command in PowerShell:

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol = [System.Net.ServicePointManager]::SecurityProtocol -bor 3072; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString(''))

Software installation script

After chocolatey install - reload PowerShell command shell, launch it again and just run the script below to install all required software at one launch:

cinst googlechrome -y && choco pin add -n googlechrome -y
