How To Remove Widgets From Windows 11

Are you struggling with excess clutter on your Windows 11 screen? Follow this guide to learn how to remove widgets and declutter your workspace.

To remove the Widgets feature from Windows 11, there are a few methods you can try. One way is to open PowerShell as an administrator and use the command “Get-AppxPackage *WebExperience* | Remove-AppxPackage.” Alternatively, you can use the command “winget uninstall –id 9MSSGKG348SP” in PowerShell. These commands will completely uninstall Widgets. To reinstall Widgets, open PowerShell as an admin and run the command “winget install –id 9MSSGKG348SP.”

Another method to remove the Widgets button from the Taskbar is to right-click the button and choose “Unpin from Taskbar.” You can also go to Taskbar settings and turn off the toggle for Widgets. Unfortunately, you can’t keep the weather widget while disabling the news curation in Windows 11.

Uninstalling Widgets with PowerShell Commands

If you prefer using PowerShell, here’s how you can uninstall widgets from Windows 11 with a few simple commands. By opening PowerShell as an administrator and executing the appropriate commands, you can remove the Widgets feature completely from your system.

You have two options to uninstall Widgets using PowerShell. The first method involves executing the command “Get-AppxPackage *WebExperience* | Remove-AppxPackage” in PowerShell. This command will remove the Widgets package from your Windows 11 installation.

Another option is to use the command “winget uninstall –id 9MSSGKG348SP” in PowerShell. This command will specifically target the Widgets app and uninstall it from your system.

It’s worth noting that removing the Widgets feature will also remove all the installed widgets from your system. So, make sure to back up any important widget configurations before proceeding with the uninstallation.

If you decide to reinstall Widgets at a later time, you can do so by opening PowerShell as an administrator and running the command “winget install –id 9MSSGKG348SP”. This command will download and install the Widgets app on your Windows 11 system.

Disabling News Curation while Keeping the Weather Widget

Unfortunately, in Windows 11, it’s not possible to disable news curation while keeping the weather widget. Disabling news curation will remove all the curated news content from the Widgets feature, including the weather widget. The only way to keep the weather widget is to have news curation enabled.

To remove the Widgets button from the Taskbar, you have a couple of options. You can simply right-click the button and choose “Unpin from Taskbar.” This will remove the button from the Taskbar, but the Widgets feature will still be accessible through other means.

An alternative method is to go to Taskbar settings and turn off the toggle for Widgets. This will hide the Widgets button from the Taskbar, preventing accidental clicks. However, keep in mind that this action only hides the button and doesn’t remove the entire Widgets feature from Windows 11.

In summary, if you prefer using PowerShell, you can easily uninstall the Widgets feature from Windows 11 by executing a few commands. Unfortunately, you can’t disable news curation while keeping the weather widget. Removing the Widgets button from the Taskbar can be done by either right-clicking the button or disabling the toggle in Taskbar settings. Remember to back up any important widget configurations before uninstalling Widgets.
