Windows10Debloater (a great tool)

This wonderful tool removes bloatware aka crapware from your PC. Note that it only removes apps i.e. Microsoft-installed apps and those installed from the Microsoft Store. It will not remove installed programs like Adobe Reader, Foxit, etc.

I have used it on Windows 10 and Windows 11. It works on windows 11 with this caveat: if you click on [CUSTOMISE BLOCKLIST] after your final viewing of C:\custom-lists.ps1 the tool will lose some of your edits ... even if you change nothing.

link: GitHub - Sycnex/Windows10Debloater: Script to remove Windows 10 bloatware.
YES it works on Windows 11 also

No need to download

=> start Powershell in Admin mode

=> PS > iwr -useb https://git.io/debloat|iex

Windows10Debloater - Main Screen

most of this is self-explanatory

suggest you never use [REMOVE ALL BLOATWARE]
- you are using the tool's definition of bloatware
- not your definition; you will have to reinstall lots

FIRST

Make a list of apps you want to keep; some apps have multiple entries

click [CUSTOMISE BLOCKLIST]

Windows10Debloater - Customize Screen

some items are non-removable


check items you want to get rid of
clear items you want to keep
- careful: some items are listed multiple times

2. click [Save] and close the Customize window

3. edit the file C:\custom-lists.ps1

this file contains 2 sections: top (keep) and bottom (remove)
make sure you are not removing an item you want to keep
again: some items have multiple entries

go to step 1 if you need to make changes

4. click [REMOVE BLOATWARE WITH CUSTOM BLOCKLIST]

this will take time...
