Windows 10 Debloater Tool | Debloat GUI | Updated Jan 12, 2021! V1.3

Colours do not matter no more. Different colours are just for separation between alternate (two/2) options.
The gray-circle option “None” is if you do not want to select either.
Read the label and ToolTip message popup when you hover your mouse over the selection for more information.

Use our FREE software utility (Version 1.3) to select what you want from the many options or choose a preset first from ‘Defaults’ or ‘Minimum’ to create the ultimate PowerShell script to debloat Microsoft Windows 10! Create your own radiobuttons preset and share! You can run the script directly from the program.

SOURCES, REFERENCES & IMPORTANT NOTICES

We based our tool on Chris Titus Tech’s GitHub PowerShell Scripts: https://github.com/ChrisTitusTech/win10script as of Oct 24, 2020. Our tool is a mainly a front-end for the source scripts to make things easier to choose the many of options. We add our own touches. Check updates for additions.

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.

README

This program creates a PowerShell script file that you can run to tweak/’Debloat’ Windows 10. A restore point is created in the beginning so you can safely use this tool.

The options are arranged in different tabs and there are presets: Default and Minimum in the Options menu. You can choose a preset first and add your own choices. You can also create your own radiobutton presets and share. There is also a ‘Opposite’ menu choice to select the alternate radiobutton choices. This is good to revert the changes in a script to run.

FUTURE UPDATES

We plan to add a ‘EZ Debloater’ page with buttons to quickly debloat. Here is the rough mockup.

UPDATE 1.3

We recreated the program in a different language and new user interface (C# + WPF). We added the option for Reading and Editing the ‘functions.txt’ file by clicking the small square button with each radiobutton.

Click this square button to read/edit the function.

UPDATE 1.2

For more information about a option, place your mouse cursor over the radiobutton for a ToolTip. A ToolTip is a balloon message popup that shows when you rest your mouse cursor over a radiobutton. ToolTip in English.

Hover your mouse over the radiobutton for more information via a ToolTip.

UPDATE 1.1

The “Windows Apps” tab now has all the choices for debloating all 45+ Windows apps. Select to remove them or select to ‘LeaveAlone’ (stay on your computer).

Over 45+ options to choose from now.

You can directly run the PowerShell script from the program after creating your script. Click the ‘Run Powershell’ button after you fill in the radiobutton choices and click the ‘Output PowerShell’ button. The “Run PowerShell” button creates a PowerShell script called ‘runpsscript.ps1’ in the same directory and runs it.

OR save the PowerShell script as whatever you wish in the same directory with the other files and then run it using the following commands.

But first, launch PowerShell (Run as administrator) and navigate to where your script is.

  1. Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted
  2. ./YOUR_SCRIPT_NAME.ps1

YOUR_SCRIPT_NAME is the name of the PowerShell script you just saved.

Files

There needs to be 8 files for this program to run properly.

Windows10Debloater.exe : The GUI program.
data.txt : contains the options(function names) to select from (usually only 2 options that something is Enable or Disable). Notice the sections and how a comma and double quotes separate them. The last option in each section does not have a comma. Add or substract from the set.
►functions.txt : contains the complete functions named from data.txt. These are the commands that get run. Add or substract from the set.
default.txt : contains defaults preset. Click this option from the menu in program.
