Windows 11: here is the complete list of unwanted software that you can now uninstall

Microsoft will soon make it possible for users of Windows 11 to remove even more pre-installed applications, which is good news for people who prefer a tidy operating system.

If you've ever purchased a computer with Windows, you've definitely noticed that the operating system from Microsoft comes with a ton of pre-installed software, many of which become unused apps. Never.
We can soon delete more Windows 11 apps, according to a new Insider Build, which is good news because it seems like Microsoft is paying attention. Indeed, the release of Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25931 will herald the day when users can finally uninstall additional preinstalled programs like Photos or Contacts, according to information in a new Windows blog.


Microsoft made the decision to provide users the choice to remove two additional built-in apps, Contact and Photos, after Cortana and the Camera app. The Remote Desktop client, another component that some people think could pose a security issue, can also be removed.
Apart from the ability to remove preloaded apps, Build 25931 brings with it an additional series of changes and improvements to Windows 11. These include the addition of additional fields in File Explorer to the ability to synchronize the color of your Windows accent with your favorite devices, or even the possibility of disabling Windows Spotlight during future updates of the operating system.
When Microsoft intends to distribute this new update to all customers is currently unknown. However, you'll need to update to the most recent Canary build of Windows 11, which was just made available to Windows Insiders, if you want to test out these new capabilities right away. The full list of programs you can uninstall is shown below:
