SOURCES, REFERENCES & IMPORTANT NOTICES

We now work with farag2 (Dmitry Nefedov) the creator of Windows 10/11 ‘Sophia Script‘: https://github.com/farag2/Sophia-Script-for-Windows. Our tool is basically a front-end/GUI wrapper for the source scripts to make things easier to choose the many of options. Check updates to see what we have added. farag2’s GitHub now hosts our wrapper. We try to work with farag2/Dmitry to update the main script when we find anything that needs work. We are getting more involved with his projects.

NOTICE 1: During the PowerShell script run you will still encounter prompts requiring your attention. So be near your computer to input your responses.

NOTICE 2: This program only reads from JSON files. Everything is done through these files so you can modify every option.

ABOUT PROGRAM: We are beginner programmers so things look quite ‘beginner-level’. The whole idea of this Front End/GUI Wrapper was to build a ‘selection form builder’ to create selection options from reading simple JSON files so anyone could add their own options to the program themselves via adding to or removing from it. This way we don’t have to come back and hard code new options. Therefore the program is end-user maintainable, fixable and shareable. Also, by creating a PowerShell script, it is now portable and shareable without the GUI wrapper. We are trying to improve it. Check Future Updates.

README

This program creates a PowerShell script file that you can run to tweak/’Debloat’ Windows 10/11. Please choose to create a restore point in ‘System Protection’ tab so you can safely use this tool.

NEW CHANGE: The wrapper can be launched anywhere (no more copying the wrapper files to the ‘Sophia’ script folder) but you must import the ‘Sophia.ps1’ file to import your preset and to get the path for files to run. If you do not open ‘Sophia.ps1’ then the Wrapper controls are disabled. The options are arranged in different tabs and there is a Sophia and Windows Default preset in the Presets menu so you can debloat a set of options or revert back to defaults. You can choose the Sophia preset first and then add your own choices. Create your own “Sophia.ps1” file to share and read with the wrapper. There are ToolTips balloon message popups for detailed info for each label and option. There is ‘Opposite’ selection to choose alternate choices. There is language selection for ToolTips.

HOW TO USE

Installation

Sophia Script Wrapper can be used without installation. You can use the application by completely unzipping the downloaded ZIP file from GitHub and running the “SophiaScriptWrapper.exe” file in “Wrapper” folder. You can unzip the file anywhere. For example, unzip the file to your Windows Desktop.

Click “Code” and then click “Download ZIP”
Run “SophiaScriptWrapper.exe” from the “Wrapper” folder in extracted ZIP file

Usage

Click “Import | Export” and then click “Import Preset”
Browse one level up to “Sophia Script” folder and open it
Open your Windows folder version
Open “Sophia.ps1”
  • The Wrapper’s controls should be enabled now for you to choose your selections. Most of the controls of each tabs should be filled with the imported “Sophia.ps1” selections. “Sophia.ps1” contains the “Sophia Preset” which is recommend selections.
After (importing) opening “Sophia.ps1” the Wrapper’s controls should be enabled for you to select
  • Go to the “Console Output” to see the PowerShell script created from your selections and click the “Run PowerShell” button to execute the script. The “Run PowerShell” button creates overwrites imported ‘YOUR.ps1’ and runs it. It makes a backup of ‘Sophia.ps1’ called ‘Sophia_original.ps1’ if import file is called ‘Sophia.ps1’.
The “Console Output” tab has the generated PowerShell script for you to run “Run PowerShell” or save (export)

Manually Run

Save (Export) the PowerShell script generated from your selections as whatever you want with Sophia files (see heading FILES below) and run it using the following commands.

Launch PowerShell (Run as administrator) and navigate to where your script is.

  1. Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force
  2. ./YOUR_SCRIPT.ps1

YOUR_SCRIPT is the exported save file you named.
