Windows 11 is a great operating system, but it comes with applications and services that many tend not to use. This is why many are using Tiny11 or similar tools to debloat their Windows 11 installation.

Speaking of which, the new version of Tiny11 was just released, and it makes debloating Windows easier than before.

The new version of Tiny11 Builder works with any version of Windows 11

In case you don’t know, Tiny11 Builder allows you to convert a specific Windows 11 ISO into a lightweight version by removing unnecessary applications.

While this was useful, it only worked with certain versions of Windows 11, but that’s not the case anymore, as XDA Developers writes.

According to the tiny11builder Github page, the new version was just released, and now the tool works with any version of Windows 11, language, or architecture.

This is all possible thanks to the improved scripting capabilities of the PowerShell:

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

According to the developer, it can remove the following apps:

What is removed: Clipchamp, News, Weather, Xbox (although Xbox Identity provider is still here, so it should be possible to be reinstalled with no issues), GetHelp, GetStarted, Office Hub, Solitaire, PeopleApp, PowerAutomate, ToDo, Alarms, Mail and Calendar, Feedback Hub, Maps, Sound Recorder, Your Phone, Media Player, QuickAssist, Internet Explorer, Tablet PC Math, Edge, OneDrive

While this sounds great, there are some minor issues such as remnants of Edge in the Settings. Also, Outlook and Dev Home might reappear after some time.

If you’re concerned about safety, this is an open-source project, so anyone can inspect the code and the developer stated that the tool does use non-Microsoft utilities:

My main goal is to use only Microsoft utilities like DISM, and no utilities from external sources. The only executable included is oscdimg.exe, which is provided in the Windows ADK and it is used to create bootable ISO images.

However, if you want to be 100% safe, it’s always best to use unaltered Windows 11 ISO files. To learn more about this tool, visit our guide on Tiny11 vs Bloatynosy on Legion GO for more information.
