If you ever wanted a smaller version of Windows 11 that only takes up 12Gb of storage and runs on less than 4GB of RAM, Tiny11 is your must-have choice. Tiny 11 was developed by a student whose computer broke all the time so during the pandemic he told himself that he could do something, and run a more lightweight Windows.
But, how the whole tiny10 saga started! I needed to make an image small enough so that it could fit on my 2GB Nvidia MX150 GPU
The ISO comes with Microsoft's latest Windows 11 2023 Update (23H2), so you'll have access to a lot of new features, such as Windows Copilot, RGB controls in the Settings app, native RAR support, and more…. and all this with a tiny footprint.
I think this is perfect for home lab use or VM testing within nested environments, don't you agree? I think this is
The importance of this is the fact that you can even have the latest features like Copilot running, but only if you need it!
You can also enjoy from the new Windows 11 23H2 features like Copilot, but only if you want to have them! You just have to install Edge using Winget and voila, you have Copilot on tiny11! It's all about choice!
With a new, easier-to-understand naming scheme and a number of major improvements, tiny11 2311 is finally here! Based on the *actual* 23H2 release of Windows 11, the new release is a whopping 20% smaller than the old tiny11 23H2 image it replaces, while being even more functional.
The latest version is not the initial version. In the latest release, there is plenty of new stuff. Readers might asks what is new in this release.
What's new in Tiny11?
NTDEV, the developer who created Tiny11, has included updates on his end, and then all the features bring the latest Windows 11 2023 Update features shipping to the platform.
- Users can update the latest version of Tiny11 to the next set of cumulative updates, thus ensuring that it's more secure and stable.
I'll be testing it in the lab, after the download.
There are several versions of Tiny11. A Tiny11 Core uses only 3.21 GB of disk space. Crazy indeed…
Well, I hope you like this article.

Download Notes: You can download tiny11 2311 using this link but you must sign up with an Internet Archive site before you do that. (create a free account, validate your email, then login, and only then download…..) Otherwise, the download won't work!
