How to install metricbeat on multiple servers once

I have installed beat agents on single machine and I want to get them installed (winlogbeat, metricbeat and filebeat) on 5 more machines in my environment. I don't want to login to each and every machine and install them. I want to run a powershell script or single step installation method to acheive this.

Are you asking if we have such a script available? In this case the answer would be no but it should be pretty straight forward to create one based on the manual steps you did.

What do you use to deploy other services on the servers?

Being an enthusiastic Ansible user myself, I would recommend giving Ansible a shot to install the beats on Windows. Some pointers:

You might want to check the existing Beats Ansible roles and work them into shape for Windows.
