How to Export a List of All Installed Apps on Windows 10

Do you want to export a list of all installed programs on your Windows 10 PC? Without using any third-party software?

There is a command-line that I use every time I want to get a list of apps & programs installed on my computer.

WMIC Tweak to Export Installed Apps

As you can see in the text file InstallList.txt below, I have a list of all installed programs with two fields: Name and Version

The best thing about this method is safety since you’re not going to use any third-party software. We are going to use the built-in command wmic (Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line).

First open the command prompt as administrator by searching for CMD then right-click and choose “Run as administrator“.

Type in the command wmic and press Enter key.

Then paste the following command to export the list of installed programs into the file C:\InstallList.txt

/output:C:\InstallList.txt product get name,version

While C is the drive letter where you will store the list of installed applications, you can change the name of the output file and drive letter if you wish to change the output lcoation. This trick will also work in Windows 2000 and XP operating systems without problems.
