Software to download, install, and update your applications on Windows
Undeniably, installing multiple applications on a Windows computer can be a monotonous and time-consuming task. Fortunately, we have simple solutions like WiGui that can ease your burden today.
WiGui is a graphical interface built on the Winget tool that lets you install multiple programs simultaneously and in just a few clicks. Additionally, WiGui can automatically update your already installed software, saving you from the hassle of constantly checking for updates. However, to avail of this feature, you must install the WAU tool from the WiGui settings. But fret not, as this operation requires only two clicks.
Besides simultaneously installing several applications, WiGui allows batch uninstallation of programs. This feature comes in handy if you need to free up disk space quickly or if you want to remove multiple programs simultaneously.

4. Select the application from the list and add it to the list by clicking on the ” Add to List ” button.
