Hide Package Download Count

Hide Package Download Count

By default, Chocolatey GUI will attempt to show the download statistics for a package on a remote feed. This can be useful when making a decision about whether to install a package or not. For example, when viewing the Chocolatey Community Repository feed, you will see the following:

Hide Package Download Count Disabled 1

However, when using a feed that doesn't support package download statisics, you can be shown the following which isn't as useful:

Hide Package Download Count Disabled 2

By enabling this feature, you can turn off package download count for all sources, and as a result, you will see the following:

Hide Package Download Count Enabled 1

Hide Package Download Count Enabled 2

📝 NOTE

It is currently not possible to configure showing/hiding the package download count for individual feeds
