Customize your Windows 8 installation so as to make it faster and more stable, with just the features and options you would want on your PC
There are many people who want to get complete control over their operating system from the moment it gets installed on their PC until it is up and running. So if you are an experienced user who wants to create a custom ISO for installing WIndows 8, you can try WinReducer.
Due to this program, you will be able to remove some of the default Windows 8 functions and features such as Metro apps, drivers, fonts, or services. Advanced skills are needed otherwise you might end with a non-functional ISO.
The application runs out of the box and no entries will be added to the Windows Registry, however you need to run it from a fast HDD or an SSD, as creating the ISO requires a lot of RAM. You also need to keep in mind that the better the CPU, the faster the entire process ends.
You also need a genuine Windows 8 ISO, be it x86 or x64, before you start using WinReducer, as the app basically allows you to explore the ISO’s functions, remove the ones you don’t like, the save it as a new image.
The main window of the software utility is meant to be as simple and intuitive as possible so as not to confuse users – they will need to fill in the paths to the required third-party applications.
You only need to follow the embedded links, download and install the programs, then come back to WinReducer and specify all the requested paths. Once this step has been completed, you can move on to the next ones, where the actual customization takes place.
In order to efficiently use WinReducer, you should need to take the time and analyze each OS function before deciding to remove it from the target ISO.
