On this page, you can configure Rider's NuGet package manager.

ItemDescription
Search
Include prerelease If this option is enabled, Rider will search and install pre-release versions of packages.
Include unlisted If this option is enabled, Rider will search and install versions of packages that are at unlisted on the server (for example, at NuGet website). You may want to use this option to see outdated versions of packages.
Restore
Allow Rider to restore missing packages This option defines global NuGet package restore policy. You may want to disable NuGet package restore if you have poor Internet connection, or if you work with a large solution with complex dependencies, where restoring packages with default settings can actually break compilation.
Automatically restore missing packages when necessary This option affects different scenarios, where Rider automatically restores NuGet packages — e.g. when opening or building projects. By the way, automatic NuGet restore before building can be toggled on the Build, Execution, Deployment | Toolset and Build settings page.
Note that automatic NuGet package restore will be disabled if the Allow Rider to restore missing packages option is disabled.

Preferences in the Install and Update and in Uninstall sections work exactly the same as in Visual Studio package manager:
