The term “debloat” refers to the process of removing those unnecessary apps and services from Windows 11 (in this case) that you may not find necessary, invasive, or otherwise would be wasting system resources.
Unfortunately, even if you do a clean installation, Windows 11 still comes with a bunch of software and services that may continuously run in the background, wasting system resources, and battery life, and collecting usage data (telemetry) without an option to turn them off.
Although you could spend hours trying to figure out the things you can remove and more time using PowerShell commands, there is a tool known as “Debloos” that makes it easy to debloat Windows 11 quickly. The tool is available through GitHub, and it’s a simple piece of software to uninstall many components, including those that are not available through the “Installed apps” settings page.
In this guide, you will learn the steps to use a simple to make Windows 11 as lean as possible by removing components you may not need.
Important: Since this is a third-party application that will make system changes, it’s recommended to create a backup of the system in case something goes wrong and you need to roll back. Use the tool and instructions at your own risk.
