This unofficial tool can help you tweak Windows 11 to your own liking

If you're looking to customize Windows 11 without visiting multiple settings pages, then you might be interested in a new app from the developer "Belim." As posted on GitHub, and spotted by Neowin, a new "ThisIsWin11" tool can help you tweak Microsoft's new operating system.

There's a lot of cool things to this unofficial app, which was designed for "getting to know Windows 11," according to the developer. You can use it to remove certain apps and features of Windows 11. If your PC struggles with the new OS, you can even use it to turn Fluent Design effects on and off, disable things like Snap Assist and the Chat app. There's a total of five modules in the app, which apparently is similar to Microsoft's own PowerToys. These can be seen below.

  • Presenter: The start screen guides you through an pictured introduction to the new operating system Windows 11 and allows you quickly to configure it.
  • PumpedApp: This module allows you checking and optimizing Windows 11 configuration among other things (all changes made can also be undone)
  • Kickassbloat will help you removing pre-installed Windows 11 apps
  • Packages is there for you to quickly install one or the other app
  • PowerClicks allows you automating several Windows 11 tasks based on PowerShell and community scripts.

Internet is required to use this app, as is some general knowledge of working your way around the Windows operating system. We don't recommend downloading this if you're not comfortable with a program that changes the Packages folder in Windows as the app will tweak or delete the system files in this folder. Again, though, download at your own risk, as this is an app from a third-party developer that might end up crashing or causing other issues with your PC.
