Digging around in GitHub I found this really nice “win 10 debloat” tool. Some of you guys may already know about it some may not. It uses “ps” and does a GREAT job. You can also customize it on what to remove if there is something you need or want to keep. Please just pay attention as it will do the job, yes I have used it and no issues to report. Win10 HVM works great after using it, lol in fact too great… boots faster now…
Just in case you weren’t aware, you may want to also consider just installing a “factory de-bloated” version of Windows 10 to start with, i.e. go for the Windows 10 LTSC editions as they provide a slightly better platform to start with; note that they still require a few tweaks (GPO and others) for further reducing telemetry.
I installed Windows Ameliorated on Qubes with QWT and have no problems. That is the ultimate debloated windows
Agreed, IMO Windows Ameliorated is the best option, I’m using it as a daily driver currently and it’s great.
A lot of other options don’t remove windows update, which in turn can bring back some of the stuff that got removed.
Edit: also it probably does a much better job getting rid of telemetry, there’s virtually none with Ameliorated.
Windows pre-installed unnecessary applications, stop some telemetry functions, stop Cortana from being used as your Search Index, disable unnecessary scheduled tasks, and more…
never heard of it. also good to know
@naverone ,yes it did remove a ton of stuff plus removed the "reg edits"and cpu load is WAY down. Idle around 2-5%, which in my book great. Before running that script cpu was high a lot of times.
I never heard of this “Windows Ameliorated”.
