  2. Windows Subsystems for Android - disable root

    Hi.

    I have Windows 11 and installed Windows Subsystems for Android on it.

    I followed a guide online and successfully installed Google Play store, which allows me to install any Android app from there.

    The guide can be found here:

    How to run Google Play Store Android apps on Windows 11

    The issue that i have is with root. Some apps that i wanted to use tell me that they won't run because the Android system is rooted.

    I didn't do anything in particular to root Android and I was wondering, though I expect it to be a long shot - is there any way I can unroot that system? Would running it under a standard user account, not an administrator, fix this?

    Note that i don't run the app with administrator privileges (UAC) but i am running am administrator account on the PC.

    Thank you!

    1. Files show the files which Apps download to the Device.
    2. Subsystem Screen reader helps accessibility wise, like screen reading on in Android apps you plan to run.
    3. Developer mode helps you to sideload an APK file manually using ADB. See .
    4. Resources: If the Subsystem is selected As needed, no resources are used in the Background, so as a result, apps open slowly. If a continuous option is selected, resources continue to be used in the Background, and Apps open quickly.

    To conclude, these steps can help you get started with running Android apps using Windows Subsystem for Android on Windows 11. Hopefully, it would be available for the general public soon.

    In addition, if you are outside the United States and wish to try out WSA manually, you can follow this guide:
