Windows has added some new and interesting features… and by interesting I mean spyware.
Dev Home is a new developer's kit that uses "Co-pilot" the windows version of chatGPT to "help you code" while also spying on everything you do even when you aren't coding or using copilot.
To uninstall it you have to run Windows Powershell as an admin and type in the following line:
Get-AppxPackage *Microsoft.Windows.devhome* | Remove-AppxPackage
That should uninstall the package. You can't uninstall it in the settings like a normal program.
Also you'll probably want to uninstall Co-pilot which is it's own ordeal. Depending on which version of windows 11 you have it may need extra steps.
The long and the short of it is that you'll need to use the Group Policy Editor.
This method is available for Windows 11 Pro, Enterprise, or Education editions.
Open gpedit.msc (Usually in C:\Windows\System32\gpedit.msc)
Navigate to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Copilot in the Group Policy Editor.
Double-click on "Turn off Windows Copilot" and select "Enabled" to remove Copilot entirely.
Restart your computer.
If you have Windows 11 Home you'll have to enable gpedit.msc
