This awesome third-party tool lets you tweak Windows 11 better than any Microsoft app – XDA Developers

Key takeaways

  • NTDEV, the developer of Tiny11, has released a new version of the Builder variant.
  • This variant now lets you choose from any version of Windows 11 you like.
  • In true Tiny11 fashion, the app will also strip your ISO of any bloatware.



Windows 11 comes with a lot of pre-installed apps that not everyone will like. For example, users will likely use Microsoft Edge and the News widget more than Xbox or Clipchamp. But getting rid of all the glitter can be boring at best, and impossible at worst. Luckily, the creator of the legendary third-party app Tiny11 has released a new version of its Builder variant, and it looks to be a major win for anyone looking to take more control over their Windows 11 system.

As spotted by Neowin, the latest version of Tiny11 Builder has been released. If this is the first time you’ve heard of the app, Tiny11 aims to install Windows 11 on your system with as little bloatware as possible. This means getting rid of all the apps people consider non-essential to give them more room for the ones they actually want. The developer, NTDEV, has come out of hiding once again to announce the release of a new version of Tiny11 Builder.

So, what’s the problem with this new update? It turns out that thanks to advancements in Powershell, Tiny11 Builder can now give you even more customization than ever:

You can now use it on ANY version of Windows 11 (not just a specific version), as well as ANY language or architecture. This is made possible by the significantly improved scripting capabilities of PowerShell, compared to the older version of Batch.

Before you jump in, here’s a list of all the apps that have been removed from Windows 11 using Tiny11 Builder, which you can change to keep the ones you actually want:


Clipchamp, News, Weather, Xbox (although the Xbox Identity Provider is still there, so it should be possible to reinstall it without issue), GetHelp, GetStarted, Office Hub, Solitaire, PeopleApp, PowerAutomate, ToDo, Alarms, Mail and Calendar, Feedback Hub, Maps, Tape Recorder, Your Phone, Media Player, QuickAssist, Internet Explorer, Tablet PC Math, Edge, OneDrive

If this sounds perfect to you, head over to the project’s GitHub page and grab it yourself. And if you want to customize Windows 11 but rather not remove a ton of included apps, why not check out StartAllBack to learn how to tweak the operating system to your liking?
