To install the Scoop package manager, we recommend running the quick start script on the scoop.sh website.

Applies to all versions of Windows 10

Scoop is a command line package manager for Windows that facilitates the installation and use of common programs and tools. Scoop includes support for a wide variety of Windows software, as well as Unix world favorites. It addresses many of the common critical points with the Windows software ecosystem, compared to the package manager models of Unix systems.

When using Scoop, you can download and install compatible programs with a single command: "spoon installation program", where the program is the name of the program It is equally easy to update, uninstall and find software, avoiding long trips to websites and to the Windows configuration application.

 Scoop

This guide will only scratch the surface of what is possible with Scoop. We will show you how to install Scoop so you can add applications to your system with the command shown above. We will publish more guides in the coming weeks to help you understand the Scoop ecosystem.

The recommended way to install Scoop is to download and run the automatic installer, which is distributed as a PowerShell script. Start PowerShell and run the following command:

  Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned -scope CurrentUser 

(Warning: This allows the current user to run scripts that have originated from a remote source. Use with caution and read the notes on Scoop site web for more details.)

 Scoop

Then use the following command to download and install Scoop. You can also check the Scoop website to make sure you are using the latest version of the command. If you are worried about what the script does, you can read its source at get.scoop.sh.

  iex (new-object net.webclient) .downloadstring (& # 39; https: //get.scoop.sh') 

Scoop should now be installed successfully. If you find an error, make sure the PowerShell execution policy is set correctly (see above) and see the Scoop documentation.

 7zip installation with Scoop

With Scoop installed, you can continue and use the tool to install software on your machine. A popular utility is the 7zip file manager. With Scoop, you can install it by running "scoop install 7zip" from the command prompt. Scoop will automatically download and install the latest version of 7zip, including the dependencies it requires. You will find a shortcut to the program in the "Scoop Apps" folder in your Start menu.

 7zip installation with Scoop

Scoop supports dozens of ready-to-use programs and many more are available using third-party repositories ("cubes"). For a more detailed guide on the use of Scoop, we recommend reading the wiki. This includes a complete reference for all commands that are available.

Scoop may seem complicated to configure, but once it is executed, it makes the administration of the program extremely simple.
