Package Manager window

Use the Unity Package Manager (in Unity’s top menu: Window > Package Manager) to view which packages are available for installation or already installed in your project. In addition, you can use this window to see which versions are available, and install, remove, disable, or update packages for each project.

The Package Manager window

The Package Manager window displays:

(A) The preview package indicator, which warns you when your project contains preview packages. By default, the Package Manager does not show preview packages in the list. However, you can turn on the Enable Preview Packages project setting to include preview packages in the list.

(B) The add button, which you can click to install a package directly into your project from this window.

(C) The Packages drop-down menu, which you can use to filter which packages appear in the list.

(D) The Sort drop-down menu, which lets you sort the list of packages by name or date.

(E) The Advanced drop-down menu, which you can click to display preview packages in addition to those that have been verified to work with Unity.

(F) The search box, which you can use to look for packages by name.

(G) The packages list view, which displays all packages that match the filter and search parameters you specify.

(H) The package-specific detail view, which displays information specific to the package selected in the list.

(I) The status bar, which displays messages about the package load status and warnings about the network.

(J) The reload button, which you can click to force Package Manager to reload your packages.

(K) Buttons to install or update a package (or the Up to date message if the selected version is already installed.)

(L) Buttons to remove or disable the package.

Advanced actions

The Advanced drop-down menu allows you to perform these actions:

Drop-down menu item Action results
Reset Packages to defaults Select this item to return to Unity Package Manager default settings.

Warning: This removes all customization from your project manifest file. Only use this a last resort when you can’t figure out what is wrong with your project manifest file.
Show dependencies Display each package’s dependencies in the details view.
Show preview packages Include preview packages in the package list.

Note: Preview packages are not verified to work with Unity and might be unstable. They are not supported in production environments.
