How to remove WordPress default plugins?

You can remove wordpress default widgets.

Nobody is using wordpress many default widgets. It is better to remove or deactivate them to speed up website.

If you would like to remove or clean up your widgets. Please paste the following code anywhere , personally I suggest in bottom, on the page.

Place the following in your functions file (Appearance > Editor > Theme Functions – functions.php):

// unregister all widgets
function unregister_default_widgets() {
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Pages');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Calendar');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Archives');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Links');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Meta');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Search');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Text');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Categories');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Recent_Posts');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Recent_Comments');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_RSS');
unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Tag_Cloud');
unregister_widget('WP_Nav_Menu_Widget');
unregister_widget('Twenty_Eleven_Ephemera_Widget');
}
add_action('widgets_init', 'unregister_default_widgets', 11);
