Windows 11 Debloater Tool is a free portable tool to customize the Windows 11 operating system.
The Windows 11 Debloater app is a “general-purpose tweaker,” which sets it apart from specialized tools to enhance security and privacy.
To use the tool, you need to download the application as a ZIP archive from their official website. The size of the application is 113 kilobytes.
NOTE: This program is SAFE! Your Anti-Virus software (Microsoft Defender SmartScreen) may scan this program saying this is an unrecognized app and prevent it from starting. But this program has been tested and is 100% safe!
NOTICE: This program only edits and reads from TEXT files. Everything is done through text files so you can modify every option and function data.
Windows 11 Debloater: a powerful tool with shortcomings in usability
Unpack the archive and run the Windows11Debloater.exe file from the directory.
When you start, you might see a SmartScreen Filter warning and a User Account Control prompt.
The program interface is clearly overloaded. The EZ Debloater start page displays quick actions that users can perform with just a few clicks. A variety of operations are available here, from deleting OneDrive to applying important settings and enabling clipboard history.
The tweaks themselves are displayed as scripts, but most users will have a hard time understanding what exactly those scripts are doing. Tooltips are available for some entries, but they contain little information about the changes that are applied. To run the script, simply click the Run Script button.
Some scenarios may cause a change in system functionality. It is highly recommended that you back up your system and important data before making any app changes. In Windows 11 Debloater, there is an option to roll back the settings, but the extra recovery option won’t hurt if something goes wrong.

The app includes over a dozen tabs with settings that make personal changes to specific Windows 11 operating system features.
For example, consider the Privacy & Telemetry tab. It displays 14 settings that can be applied or restored—these range from disabling the advertising ID to disabling the core DiagTrack telemetry service.
The tooltips on this tab will be useful because they contain a brief description of what the script does in the OS. The interface can be confusing as you get five choices for each entry. The letters represent the PowerShell scripts that are executed when you select a setting in the interface, and the three selectors define the actual action that is taken when the script is run.
Some tabs contain only a few settings, and some are filled with scripts. Settings headings can sometimes be difficult to understand, but tooltips are available to help users learn about a particular setting. Another option that users have is to view the script code and look for a registry key, a scheduled task, or other identifiers that let you know the details.
Windows 11 Debloater is a powerful tool that still has usability issues. Presenting items as a list would make the interface more convenient and straightforward. We will monitor the development of the application and share them with you in time.
