Windows 11 to Shed More Weight: More Uninstall Options Coming Your Way!

Hey Windows 11 users, prepare to wave goodbye to some unwanted clutter! Microsoft is taking its decluttering game to the next level by letting you uninstall even more of those built-in apps. Think of it as a digital spring cleaning, letting you choose what stays and what goes.

Already being put through the paces with the Canary Channel testers, this fresh build of Windows 11 includes options to uninstall apps like the Camera app (Yeah, really!), the recently axed Cortana app (bye, old friend), Photos, People, and even the Remote Desktop (MSTSC) client.

This step follows Microsoft’s ongoing move to allow users more control over these preinstalled, or as they call them, “inbox apps.” While it’s true that most of these apps aren’t taking up boatloads of space, who wouldn’t like to free up a little room and have their Windows feel a tad less crowded?

In fact, the option to uninstall the Camera app has been floating around the Windows 11 test builds since March, and Cortana joined the uninstall party earlier this month. But for those who aren’t rocking the Windows Insider builds, you’ll need to play the waiting game a little longer to have this uninstall liberty with Camera, Cortana, Photos, People, and Remote Desktop.

And here’s the juicy bit: the big Windows 11 update set for September might not just stop at expanding uninstallation choices. We’re talking native support for RAR and 7-Zip files (finally!), a revamped settings homepage (a fresh look, anyone?), a far superior volume mixer (rock on!), and early access to something intriguing called Windows Copilot.

So, mark your calendars for September, and brace yourselves for a lighter, more personalized Windows experience. Microsoft seems all set to put the power back in our hands, one uninstall option at a time!
