https://chocolatey.org/install#individual Chocolatey has the largest online registry of Windows packages.

https://chocolatey.org/packages For me this took some time to compile the list that I wanted but you can use the ones I have as a starting point and customize from there.
Run Choco Install
- NOTE: must run PowerShell as administrator
- NOTE: must run ‘Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted’ before executing this script
