Winpilot, previously called BloatyNosy, has received a new update earlier today. The latest release of this Windows debloating and tweaking app, version 2024.6.21, has multiple fixes and improvements including some for the UI (user interface).

Speaking of UI, the Winpilot setup now integrates a GUI (graphical UI) for MSEdgeTweaker, a recently released unofficial script that allows disabling various stuff on Edge you may feel is bloat. Hence now, you can tweak and turn off Windows and Edge "bloat" all from one place.

Besides these, the developer of the Winpilot utility, Belim, also announced recently that the application was now a Win32 desktop app, moving away from being a WebView2 web app. The full changelog for Winpilot version 2024.6.21 is given below:

Winpilot has cut ties with WebView2 and is no longer a web app! More details here

  • The Setup module now features a full-fledged GUI solution for TheBobPony's MSEdgeTweaker script, available at https://github.com/TheBobPony/MSEdgeTweaker
  • Fixed a critical bug in the Setup/CoTweaker module where Clippy automatically set recommended settings with admin rights
  • Seamless integration of several modules into the chat window, such as Apps Installer and Plugins (see the preview)
  • The Refresh now also updates its recommendations
  • Resolved several bugs in AI classes related to Copilot
  • Clippy can now theoretically be replaced by other mascots like Copilot. Just place PNG files of your choice into the app/assets folder and configure it in your settings
