The Windows 11 platform has long had many pre-installed and rarely used applications.
According to Digital Trends, Microsoft is testing the ability to allow users to remove pre-installed applications from the Windows 11 operating system, to make room for third-party applications and new updates of a device. old program number.
Specifically, Microsoft recently started rolling out Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 23585, which allows users to uninstall a series of built-in applications from Windows 10 and Windows 11. The company revealed in the Windows Insider Blog that the update will allow uninstalling apps like Camera, Cortana, Photos, People, and the Remote Desktop app (MSTSC).
Currently, this capability is available exclusively to Windows 11 Insiders, who test the software before it is released to the public. Therefore, Microsoft can still consider whether to implement new capabilities with future updates.
Previously in August, Windows Central noted that the Cortana application had stopped working on Windows, and would likely be removed from the system in a future update. Currently, Microsoft plans to offer AI assistant Copilot to replace Cortana.
It can be seen that the company’s recent moves suggest that providing the ability to manually uninstall inactive features instead of having to wait for another update to remove them is something that should be done.
