    The tutorial was written almost a year before Windows 10 was released, in October 2014. Quite a lot have been changed, I realize I have to edit the tutorial and bring it up-to-date.

    Everything still works as told in tutorial, but there are some minor changes. One of these changes is the change of the module name: OneGet commands are now listed in module PackageManagement.

    Use Get-Command -Module PackageManagement to get list of OneGet commands.
    Thanks! That will help a whole lot.

    Do I need to install Chocolatey first?

    Well, I've made a mell of a hess of things, so, what do I do now?

    Can I close everything out and start over, or do I need to delete what I've started?

    You don't have to delete anything. Yes, Chocolatey must be added with Get-PackageProvider Chocolatey before you can start installing softwware.

    Thanks Kari.

    One more question . . . I've installed Chocolatey. Will that have stayed installed?

    Also, I'm pretty sure I've left unrestricted on. So I don't have to do that again?

    Oh, and BTW, I was hoping you were asleep and I'd have to wait until tomorrow. Not that I want to wait; everyone needs to sleep every so often.

    Chocolatey only needs to be installed once.

    Your C: drive should now have a very small folder Chocolatey on root of it. The folder will always remain very small taking almost no space, containing one subfolder Lib in which you find again a subfolder for each installed package. These folders only contain about 5 KB information (library files) OneGet needed when the package was installed. You can delete everything in Lib folder but leave Lib itself and its parent folder Chocolatey intact for future need, Chocolatey needs them.

    You can always when you want to check your executionpolicy with cmdlet Get-ExecutionPolicy, and if preferred change it back to Restricted with Set-Executionpolicy Restricted.

    Thanks again, Kari. I'm watching the video again. I've read the instructions and watched the video once, and it really clarifies matters for me.

    Ummm, it was a shock to hear a voice other than yours!

    And you didn't think you'd get so easily, did you?

    Will PowerShell OneGet install apps that need product keys? Because most of my apps are commercial and I'll need to plug in a key.
