How to Install the Most Popular Software on Your PC All at Once

Using an amazing and free service, you can create a “custom installer file” that can install a slew of the most popular Windows software, all at once. That same “customer installer” can also be used to keep all of those same Apps up to date with a single click!

Rather than find the web page page for each and every one of your favorite Apps, why not install them all at once, with one file? Choose from Spotify, VLC, 7-zip, Firefox and 80+ others – here’s how you can install a whole bunch of software at once:

  1. Head over to ninite.com. You’ll be presented with a huge list of Apps and “check boxes” next to each one. Select every App you want to install by placing a check mark in it’s corresponding box. There’s no limit to the number you can select. Once you’ve made all your choices, click the large Get Your Ninite button.
  2. selecting software to install all at once in Windows

  3. You’ll be prompted to save a file that starts with Ninite and then has a list of Apps in the file name. Save it to your Downloads folder, and then run it from there.
  4. a Windows Explorer window with an arrow pointing to an exe file

  5. The installation process will begin. Among the amazing features – you won’t be prompted to click “Next” at all, if any of the Apps you decided to download include annoying “Toolbars” or features you probably don’t want – Ninite won’t install any of them. You can literally walk away from your PC and when you come back, everything will be installed.
  6. the mail Ninite installer screen

  7. Once the process has completed, you’ll get a list with all of the confirmations.
  8. the expanded version of the Ninite installer screen

  9. Note: Keep this file! If you run it again in the future, it will check to make sure all of the Apps you installed using it, will be updated to the latest version. So not only is it an “all in one installer”, it’s an “all in one updater” too.

ps. you could add the ninite installer you just created to a USB thumb drive with other software to carry with you and always be prepared.

    Ross,
    This is such a great tool. I can just put this on my Flash drive and use it whenever I set up a new machine. More likely, I’ll use it when I’m trying to enjoy a holiday dinner and one of my relatives asks me to “fix” their computer.
    Great tip.
