Install Chocolatey on Windows 10 Using PowerShell

Installing Chocolatey on Windows 10 is really easy using PowerShell. I feel like this is the right way to do it. I generally like to use PowerShell to do things when I can even when it is a quick, simple task like this.

This command will install powershell on a Windows 10 host ( probably windows 11 too ). Make sure the shell you are running this from is running as administrator. Just hold shift, right click, and select “Run as administrator”.

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1')) 

Here is a video where I show you how this can be done.

Chocolatey is a great tool that makes life easier on Windows.
