How to debloat Windows 11 from junk apps

In Windows 11 users can use a tool known as “JunkCtrl” that makes it easier to debloat Windows 11 quickly.

The term “debloat” refers to the process of removing those unnecessary apps and services from Windows 11 that you may not find necessary, invasive, or otherwise would be wasting system resources. Debloating can help to improve performance, increase battery life, reduce security risks, and increase privacy.

Luckily for those users, the tool “JunkCtrl” is available through GitHub, and it’s a simple piece of software to uninstall many components, including those not available through the “Installed apps” settings page.
