Save Time By Batch Installing Regularly Used Programs!

If, like us, you find yourself regularly downloading and installing commonly used Windows freeware such as VLC Player, 7Zip, Avast, and Chrome, the free Ninite batch installer service is going to come as a pleasant surprise!

The beauty of this software is that it allows you to pick a selection from a plethora of essential Windows apps, which are then bundled together into one handy, downloadable, web installer.

Once the setup file is launched, it automatically searches for, and downloads, the latest versions of your chosen applications, updating any that have been previously installed. Used by the Harvard Medical School and NASA, we can’t believe we didn’t know about Ninite until now, and recommend it highly!

There’s also a (paid) pro version of Ninite, available for power users and organisations. This adds features including network and offline installation, patches, and updates, improved deployment times, granular controls, software audits, RMM integration, more available apps, and a ‘silent’ background mode.
