Hide This PC Source

Hide This PC Source

There are times when you want to simplify the usage of Chocolatey GUI for your end users, and only show the sources where packages can be installed from, rather than including a source which lists all of the currently installed packages. When this feature is enabled, Chocolatey GUI would change from showing the following:

Hide This PC Source Disabled

to only showing the available remote sources which are currently configured on the system:

Hide This PC Source Enabled

Notice that the "This PC" source is no longer available.

📝 NOTE

This is a Chocolatey for Business feature, and will require install of the Chocolatey GUI Licensed Extension.

⚠️ WARNING

In order for this change to take effect, it will be necessary to close and re-open Chocolatey GUI.

⚠️ WARNING

It is not possible to use both the HideAllRemoteChocolateySources and the HideThisPCSource features at the same time. Doing this would effectively mean that there is nothing to display within the Chocolatey GUI Application. If both of these features are enabled at the same time, the HideAllRemoteChocolateySources feature takes precedence and only the This PC source will be displayed.
