  • Optimize-Offline

    Optimize-Offline is a Windows 10 offline image optimization framework. (by gdeliana)

    An alternative is Optimize-Offline[0] which uses deprovisioning to remove packages from a Windows install ISO.

    This is a method which mimics Windows' official methods which should prevent things being re-added when updating.

    There are also tweaks to remove the TPM requirement and allow Windows 11 to run on older unsupported CPUs.

    Chris Titus Tech's Windows Utility - Install Programs, Tweaks, Fixes, and Updates

    Humbly submitting Chris Titus' Debloat tool as well for comparison. I've enjoyed using Chris' tool, as the GUI design makes it easy to a-la-carte select which you want removed and not, along with recommendations. Makes it very clear to see what's being removed.
