Removing unwanted items from windows

I recently bought a used laptop that had Windows 8.1 on it, with help I got it updated to Windows 10 pro and it's running fine. (I think) I also Installed Personal Office 365, and it seems fine also. So, what I want to do now is get rid of Candy Crunch, Farm Heroes and the like that I'll never use. How do I get rid of this stuff. (no insult, (stuff), intended, I know lots of folks like games, I'm not one of them) Also any suggestions explanations and such on other things I can live without. I need this thing for internet, simple office work, it's got a blu ray dvd, I might add TV later, that's about all. Thnx, Bobby. Oh, it has a 960 or 1 TB hard drive, do I need to reformat or whatever the partitions that aren't being used, and if so, how.

I imagine your best bet is to install windows 10, and not update what was there before. you can reformat the hard drive into a single partition while you're at it, if that's how you want the storage arranged.

OK, thanks for that. I'm looking into installing an SSD, so maybe that process will take care of my issues.
