Microsoft announced that Windows 11 will soon allow users to uninstall some of the preinstalled apps that they may not need or want.
The company released a new Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25931 in the Canary Channel, which includes some bug fixes, security updates, and other improvements. One of the changes is that users can now remove the Photos app, the Remote Desktop client, and the People app from their devices. These apps join the Cortana app and the Camera app, which were already removable in previous builds.
Users can uninstall these apps from the Windows 11 settings without causing any issues with other system features or applications. Microsoft did not specify how users can reinstall these apps if they change their mind, but it is likely that they will be available in the Microsoft Store or the optional features settings.
This change is not yet available for all Windows 11 users, but it is expected to roll out in the future. Microsoft is also working on other enhancements for Windows 11, such as better screen casting, better Android app support, a new Nearby Sharing menu, and dropping support for 32-bit ARM apps.
While Windows 11 has many new and useful features, it also has some drawbacks, such as annoying ads.
