How to Enable or Disable Developer Mode on Windows 11?

Windows 11 includes a Developer Mode option for the developers who wish to test their in-development apps, sideload UWP (Universal Windows Platform) apps onto their computers, or use other developer features. By default, Developer Mode remains turned off since every Windows user does not require it. That means, in order to use this feature, you need to enable it on your PC.

If you are a coder, you can turn on Developer Mode on your Windows 11 system to install unsigned apps onto your computer in order to test them during the ongoing development of the app. So, if you are a regular user, you don’t need to activate this feature on your Windows computer.

If you wish to sideload apps on Windows 11 but do not want to install any unsigned UWP apps, you don’t need to enable Windows Developer Mode.
