Is your Windows 10 or 11 machine noticeably slower lately?
Bloatware, aka software you don’t need or use but Microsoft preloads them in Windows, is a major problem for PC and laptop owners who don’t have the latest devices.
Removing bloatware like that not only frees up storage space on Windows but also speeds up your laptop significantly, especially if you have an older device.
If you don’t need things like Microsoft News, Skype or Asphalt 8, which come installed in Windows 10 and 11, there’s a simple command to get rid of them.
Instead of going to Settings > Apps > Apps & Features the traditional way and removing them one by one, you can clean up bloatware and unnecessary background apps and processes with an automated script.
What you need to do is use Sycnex’s Windows10Debloater script. Don’t worry, it’s a super easy operation you can do even if you don’t have advanced computer skills.
Just go to the Start menu, search for Windows PowerShell, right click that option and choose “Run as administrator.”
Then, simply type there the command below and press Enter:
iwr -useb https://git.io/debloat|iex
That command automatically downloads the files you need from their Github repository, creates a system restore point (so you can back up if you don’t like the results) and opens a new program.
Want to disable Cortana, get rid of One Drive and so on?
Type the above command in the Windows PowerShell and that’s it – goodbye bloatware!
