I look at it this way, if any of this,


makes any sense to you then you might possibly need it. If it doesn't then get rid of it (that's what I did when it first showed up)..

Thanks to all advisors. Power Automate is listed as the second most RAM consuming program on my computer. It's also an Auto-Start item.

It's amazing how Google Searches are filled with everything under the sun that promotes the use of Power Automate, but as the thread-starter points out, there's hardly nothing telling us that it might not be useful and how to remove it from the P.C..

Next, I'm going to find out if this new Windows-11 startup program called "Windows Terminal" is needed.

Thanks again to all the contributors. Awesome forum!
