Winget is Microsoft's 1st party “package manager” like tool for Windows, used primarily through a command line interface.
Some Windows Store Win32 apps are distributed using Winget, they usually say “provided by $publisher” under the name and can't be uninstalled through the Windows Store.
It comes preinstalled on newest versions of Windows 10 and Windows 11. If you have Windows Terminal installed you probably have Winget.
Download Link:, in the “Assets” section look for a .msixbundle file.
