Customizing the Windows 11 desktop experience

Many people like the Windows 11 interface, but others prefer Windows 10’s old design and layout.

There are many apps that can customize Windows 11 and remove unwanted bloatware.

These three programs can customize Windows 11 in the way you want.


Windows 11 is Windows 10 in a different design. It also has the same problem with bloatware, which are unwanted apps that have been preinstalled either by OEM or Microsoft.

Windows 11 offers the ability to manually remove applications from Control Panel or Settings, just like Windows 10. You can also use ThisIsWin11, an open-source program that will quickly remove all the bloatware.

You can customize the basic and advanced features of Windows 11 and deactivate Windows 11 features such as Microsoft Teams integration in the taskbar.

These are the current features of the app:

  • Basic settings: This allows you to quickly configure basic Windows 11 settings.
  • PumpedApp: Make changes to PowerThrottling to optimize Windows 11.
  • Bloatware is a feature that will let you remove pre-installed Windows 11 applications.
  • Install apps quickly using packages
  • PowerClicks: You can automate Windows tasks with PowerShell scripts.
