Debloat Windows 11

Here again your favorite Random Dude.


Today's topic is a follow-up to this great but old article, Debloat Windows 10. As mentioned, you should remove all bloatware that the OS brings on the original install before you perform the Sysprep. This can also be done by PowerShell with several commands and scripts, but I discovered this tool (all credits to the creator) that does it for you with a pretty good interface.


teeotsa / windows-11-debloat


Here are the instructions on how to get it to work (extracted from the actual GitHub).

  1. Download the .zip file on the main page of the github and extract the .zip file to your desired location
  2. Once extracted, open PowerShell (or PowerShell ISE) as an Administrator
  3. Enable PowerShell execution Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Force
  4. On the prompt, change to the directory where you extracted the files: e.g. - cd c:\temp
  5. Next, to run either script, enter in the following: e.g. - .\win11debloat.ps1

After that, you will get the interface.

Every option work, but one pro-tip would be don't run the "Uninstall OneDrive" or you will get stuck at "Getting Ready" after deployment.


I hope that this tool makes your deployments a lot faster and easier, and yet again, all credit to the developer!


See you in my next post!

  • Hello RandomDude, we are looking for debloating Windows 11 with the K2000 - actually i didn't get it solved like on Windows 10. All Debloaters works only for the actual users. In Windows 10 we could us a Sysprep Script in the K2000 and all new users after Image Installation have a clean Windows.

    How can we use your script as Sysprep for Windows 11? Is there a way to debloat it to the default user?
