Cygwin how do I install **all** packages

Aleena Rajput 1 Reputation point

I want to install all packages from cygwin here as well as in installed Lynx in the snippet below. How do I check them all at one or two clicks so that I do not need go one item by other ?

What programs can I expect to obtain to be installed besides BASH like commands; there are hundreds of them ?
