Revo Uninstaller Free lists most of the common apps that wouldn’t really affect your PC if removed, they are kind of the obvious ones like Netflix, Skype, Microsoft News, Movies & TV etc

I would be careful of removing some of the other things in your list. Someone might be able to guide you on what can and what shouldn’t be removed.

I would strongly caution you to make an image backup of your PC before going forward.

In general, it does not make much sense, the main thing is that they do not run at Windows startup and do not remain in the background.
Turn off automatic updates on Microsoft Store.

Revo Uninstaller is a great program!
It has two separate sections....one for taking out Programs, and one for Apps. The two are plainly marked in the upper left corner of the screen when you first open the program. I use it after every Windows install, to get rid of the Junk. Minus Junk is Cool!

Cheers mate!
