We have already written a few articles on how to install various software using Windows Package Management called Chocolate. It’s a nifty program that can be installed and activated using Windows PowerShell with just one command. After that, we can download and install various Windows software with one command using Command Prompt or Powershell just like Linux operating systems.
Here we will show how to use a single command from Choco to install Tor Browser on Windows 10 or 7 operating systems.
