How to customize Windows 11 desktop experience



Windows 11 is available for everyone with several new features. Windows 11 is more or less similar to Windows 10, so if you’re not happy with the new OS,  you can try some new third-party programs to customize the experience and get the most out of Windows 11.


Windows 11 is essentially Windows 10 with a new design, so it also comes with the same bloatware problem. Bloatware can be the apps installed by OEM and Microsoft.

Like Windows 10, Windows 11 also allows users to manually remove apps from the Settings or Control Panel. But if you want to quickly delete all bloatware from your system, you can try a new open-source app called ThisIsWin11.

This app basically lets you customize advanced and basic features of the operating system and disable Windows 11 features like Microsoft Teams integration on the taskbar.

The app currently comes with the following features:

Basic settings: It allows you to quickly configure the basic settings of Windows 11.
PumpedApp: You can check and optimize Windows 11 by making changes to the PowerThrottling.
Bloatware: This will feature will allow you to remove the pre-installed Windows 11 apps.
Quickly install apps using packages.
PowerClicks: This allows you to automate Windows tasks using PowerShell scripts.

The tool is available on Github.


With ElevenClock, you can have a customizable clock on your Windows 11 taskbar. ElevenClock brings back “seconds” to taskbar clock and it can now replace your system clock in order to let you customize it with color and much more.

With ElevenClock, you can show the clock over fullscreen, hide the clock when clicked, show a task manager shortcut on the clock context menu, disable the notifications badge and more.

The tool is available on Github.


Start11 was recently released to help users customize the appearance of the Start Menu and even restore the classic interface. Start11 is compatible with Windows 11 and Windows 10 and can be used to recreate the interface from previous operating system versions.

With Start11, you can even get a Windows 11-like Start menu on Windows 10. At the same time, Start11 comes with several features for Windows 11 customization. For example, you can use it to move the Start button and customize the interface of the Start Menu.

The app comes currently with the following features:

Return your Start menu to the left side of your screen.
Dark mode for a sleek look
You can choose a style and theme for your Start menu. For example, you can return to the familiar Windows 7 style Start.
Customize your taskbar by adding texture or adjusting transparency.

The tool is currently in beta and it costs $4.99 (free trial available), and it will eventually get more customization options.

You can download the app from here.
