Windows 10, frivolous Apps & Services are constantly running in the background, on by default

Microsoft Windows 10, frivolous Apps & Services that are constantly running in the background by default, unless you go into your Privacy Settings to specifically turn them off.

MS apps running in background
  • Alarm & Clock
  • Calendar
  • Get Office
  • Groove Music
  • Maps
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Movies & TV
  • People
  • Phone
  • Phone Companion
  • Photos
  • Skype Video
  • Store
  • Twitter
  • Weather
  • Xbox

Even more annoying is when they keep on running even after you’ve exited the App or application; you then have to manually go into Task Manager to ‘End’ or ‘Kill’  the task to stop it guzzling up precious CPU %
