In February this year, the popular third-party Windows 11 tweaking and customization tool, ThisIsWin11 (TIW11), received an update to version 1.4.1. While some minor bug fixes were made in this update, the major change was a complete repackaging of the tool “Deblos”. The developer of the utility, ‘builtbybel’, introduced Debloos or Debloat OS as a “Universal Debloater and PC Manager for Windows 11”. However, it didn’t stop there as the application went through another round of renaming as the tool’s developer finally settled for “BloatyNosy”.
Since then, the app has received a few updates and with the previous release, it made its debut on the Microsoft Store. However, there were some store policy violation issues that have been resolved with the latest version. Also, some features that were causing conflicts with other apps and features on Windows 11 have also been removed. You can see the full changelog for BloatyNosyApp version 0.42 below:
- Some app features have been removed that may cause conflicts with other apps or Windows 11 features.
- In the App Store version, the “InstaPackage” app (app installer via Wingt for other apps. App Policies: 10.2.5) had to be disabled as it violated store policies. It’s a wonder the app made it to the store in the first place. I didn’t expect anything different.[sic] Microsoft
- As a workaround to the store version of the deprecated/disabled InstaPackage app/module, you can install the “Chris Titus Tech Utility” mod provided for WinModder. It also allows you to install packages directly through Wingt.
- Numerous other small improvements. An App Store version will be released later. I’m curious to see what other unwanted features Microsoft will find.
