New Features and Improvements
The PowerShell ModuleManager 2019 release includes performance improvements and new features based on feedback received from our free preview that was released earlier this year.
We added the ability to update all modules on your local machine with the click of a button:

Uninstalling Older Versions
Remove old versions from your machine! When a module updates, the version is installed, but the previous versions remain. Declutter your modules by letting PowerShell ModuleManager remove those unwanted modules for you.
Uninstall Older Versions keeps only the latest version installed:

Move Installation Scope
The Installation Scope specifies where modules will be installed when updating or installing.

- All Users: Modules will be installed in a location accessible to all users: %systemdrive%:\ProgramFiles\WindowsPowerShell\Module
Move Installation Scope allows you to toggle between the two scopes:
Open Root Module will open a file that is listed as the ‘Root Module’ in the psd1 file of the module:
Open Containing Folder will open the folder the module is install at:
