"Stripping" windows 10


- - . -
This quote is from another post:
I don't have issues with Win10 after I stripped all the rubbish from it. Looks much like Win 7 now. Win 8 was the version I really detested.

I'm a long time (early 1980) Apple/Mac user who has casually run Win 7 on a VM on my Mac. A year ago I did my first PC build (Win10) to run TRS19.

Could someone please explain "stripping the rubbish" (from Win10)? I assume this means disabling certain features? I find a number of web articles on this but not sure who to trust, what to believe.

Are there things that would specifically make TRS19 run better? (Speaking win 10 OS only here.... not hardware)

Thanks in advance.
Easy method is use Winaero Tweaker which is free and you can enable or disable anything that annoys you or don't need like tiles, Cortana, One Drive, telemetry, updates and loads of other things and you can easily re-enable them. https://winaero.com/comment.php?comment.news.1836

The start menu can be replaced by Open Shell, which gives you a choice of two classic or a Win7 style
