Posted by jpluimers on 2023/05/26

In the continuing series of Chocolatey/Scoop/winget related posts, this one is about Windows Terminal.

You can configure the Microsoft Store to automatically install updates as per [Wayback/Archive] Turn on automatic app updates (on my system this was the default):

Microsoft Store - Auto-Updates is turned on by default

Microsoft Store – Auto-Updates is turned on by default

  1. Select the Start ⊞ screen, then select Microsoft Store.
  2. In Microsoft Store at the upper right, select the account menu (the three dots) and then select Settings.
  3. Under App updates, set Update apps automatically to On.
