Reduce memory footprint for Windows 10

This short article shows you one of the possibilities to reduce memory footprint when you start up your Windows 10.

To reduce the memory, I choose the Windows Services to start manually o it will not be started if there are not used.

To start the Windows Services.

1.  Press Windows Key + R.

2. Type Services.msc.


You will then see the Services like below.


You can select the one you do not need and set it to start manually.

Double click one of the items and choose the Startup type to Manual.


For me I choose those items to Startup manually (so far so good) below based on Windows 10 1151. I have not checked in my Windows 10 1607.  You may not have some of the services in your machine. Also you might need some functions that I do not need so you need to decide on this.
