About Sophia Script

Typing SVG

Note: Sophia Script for Windows is the largest PowerShell module on GitHub for Windows 10 & Windows 11 fine-tuning and automating the routine tasks. It offers more than 150 unique tweaks, and shows how Windows can be configured without making any harm to it.

Before running

Note: Due to the fact that the script includes more than 150 functions with different arguments, you must read the entire Sophia.ps1 carefully and comment out/uncomment those functions that you do/do not want to be executed (without need to edit the code), or use Wrapper. Every tweak in the preset file has its' corresponding function to restore the default settings. Running the script is best done on a fresh install because running it on wrong tweaked system may result in errors occurring.

How to use

  • Choose the right script version for your Windows;

  • Download up-to-date version;

  • Expand the archive;

  • Open folder with the expanded archive;

  • Look through the Sophia.ps1 file to configure functions that you want to be run;

    • Place the "#" char before function if you don't want it to be run.
    • Remove the "#" char before function if you want it to be run.
  • On Windows 10 click File in File Explorer, hover over Open Windows PowerShell, and select Open Windows PowerShell as Administrator (how-to with screenshots)

  • On Windows 11 right-click on the Windows icon and select Windows Terminal (Admin). Then change the current location

    Set-Location -Path "Path\To\Sophia\Folder"
  • Set execution policy to be able to run scripts only in the current PowerShell session

    Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force
  • Type .\Sophia.ps1 Enter to run the whole preset file.

How to use Wrapper

  • Download and expand the archive;
  • Run SophiaScriptWrapper.exe and import Sophia.ps1;
    • The Wrapper has a real time UI rendering;
  • Configure every function;
  • Open the Console Output tab and press Run PowerShell.

How to run the specific function(s)

To run the specific function(s) dot source the Functions.ps1 file first:

# With a dot at the beginning
. .\Functions.ps1
  • Now you can do like this (the quotation marks required)
Sophia -Functions<kbd>TAB</kbd>
Sophia -Functions temp<kbd>TAB</kbd>
Sophia -Functions unin<kbd>TAB</kbd>
Sophia -Functions uwp<kbd>TAB</kbd>
Sophia -Functions "DiagTrackService -Disable", "DiagnosticDataLevel -Minimal", UninstallUWPApps

UninstallUWPApps, "PinToStart -UnpinAll"

Or use an old-style format without the TAB functions autocomplete (the quotation marks required)

.\Sophia.ps1 -Functions CreateRestorePoint, "ScheduledTasks -Disable", "WindowsCapabilities -Uninstall"

How to download Sophia Script via PowerShell

  • Download the always latest Sophia Script archive by invoking (not as administrator too) in PowerShell
irm -useb | iex
  • The command will download and expand the latest Sophia Script archive (without running) according which Windows and PowerShell versions it is run on. If you run it on, e.g., Windows 11 via PowerShell 5.1, it will download Sophia Script for Windows 11 PowerShell 5.1.

How to translate

  • Get your OS UI culture by invoking $PSUICulture in PowerShell;
  • Create a folder with the UI culture name;
  • Place your localized Sophia.psd1 file into this folder.
