Almost any Windows edition comes witha certain set of functions, applications, programs that are already installed in the system. Unnecessary features can be deleted or disabled by the user, and besides, you can add the ones that are required to perform the necessary work, but are not installed by default. After removing unnecessary features on the system disk, there will be more free space, which is often not enough for users of tablets that run under Windows.
Not every user knows where the Windows components are on or off.
A list of components can be opened in the sectioncontrol panel "Programs and components" (look for the link in the left block). But the easiest way to start this tool is by typing the "Start" menu item in the search bar to "enable or disable Windows components."

Many functions can be disabled without restarting the computer, however, if a restart is still required, Windows will warn the user about this and will be able to save all working documents.

During installation, the OS can display a windowwith a request to access the Windows Update site. If you do not have Internet access at this time, then you will not be able to install the component located on Microsoft servers. Sometimes Windows requests the disk from which it was installed, if there is no such disk, you will have to download the distribution kit or try to get the components in a different way. Usually they can be found on the official Microsoft website, while all software products from the component list can be downloaded for free.
