Probably a simple question, but how do I get Chocolatey to list which packages are currently installed on my system?

When googling, I end up at the question below. It is related but slightly different, and it doesn't have a simple answer to my question.

Is there a way to list chocolatey packages with their install directory

choco list --local-only


clist -l

Source: https://chocolatey.org/docs/commands-list

This list all packages that are currently installed on your local machine, with version numbers.

λ  choco list --local-only
Chocolatey v0.10.8
41 packages installed.
  • If this pops up another command window which then disappears, run your initial cmd/PowerShell window as Administrator.

  • clist will be deprecated in v2, and --local-only can also be invoked with --localonly or simply -l. Apr 8 at 2:22

Another alternative would be to install the official Chocolatey GUI application. This includes a tab which shows all the currently installed applications in your machine.

To install it, simply do:

choco install chocolateygui

The GitHub Repository for Chocolatey GUI can be found here:


And a screenshot of the UI can be seen here:
