Another thing that gets snuck in on consumer laptops are programs with "free trials". 
They load at the start and most people never turn that off or uninstall them. Dropbox, McAfee, Norton, VPN services, etc. These all suck up your resources.

Best thing to do is just go through the apps list and remove all of that stuff. Other things that can be removed without consequence are things like 3D apps, Feedback, Tips, Disney Games, Xbox, etc. (It won't let you uninstall some of those apps listed.)
