In this blog post, I will show you how to install Helm on a Windows 10 machine using the most efficient way.
Helm, also known as Helm charts is a package manager for Kubernetes similar to YUM on Linux. Using Helm we can install applications like WordPress on AKS clusters.
On a Windows machines, Helm can be installed using two methods; The first method is that you can download the executable save it on your machine and add it to the Windows PATH. or using a package management tool like Chocolatey for Windows.
In this post, I will go with the Chocolatey since it is the recommended method. If you don’t have Chocolatey install go ahead and install it using the following script. If you have it installed skip this part.

To install Helm using Chocolatey, run the following command and type Y to start the installation.
