Windows 11 is notorious for having strict hardware requirements that make it difficult to use the operating system on less powerful computers or devices with older but still capable hardware. There are many ways to bypass the limitations, but you can’t work around Windows 11’s large maps and tons of, let’s put it mildly, unnecessary components. Therefore, installing stock Windows 11 on unsupported hardware may result in a less than satisfactory experience. This is where Tiny 11 comes to play.

Tiny 11 is the original Windows 11 version 22H2 stripped down to the essentials. The mod requires only 8GB on the drive (stock Windows 11 chews up over 20GB), works on systems with 2GB of RAM, and doesn’t require the Trusted Platform Module or Secure Boot. You can also upgrade from Windows 10 to Tiny11.

Tiny11 provides only essential components, such as Accessibility Tools, Windows Terminal, Microsoft Store, Calculator, Notepad, and Paint. There’s no Microsoft Edge, so you can install the browser you want without the operating system begging you to stay with Edge. Also, Tiny11 works with offline accounts by default, but you can sign in with a Microsoft account.

Overall, the operating system has everything a casual user needs for comfortable day-to-day computing on any hardware. It consumes less resources and does not require sophisticated hardware. Of course, installing a modified Windows 11 ISO always has potential risks, so proceed with caution. Another thing to keep in mind is that you still need a valid key to activate Tiny11 — no piracy here. You can. Download Tiny11 from the Internet Archive..
