yeah, I know. It's 'knowing' which ones to remove. However, since I do not have a concern for space, it would seem more important to disable the 'bloatware' than to remove it, imo. I worry I might delete something I should not and I have a decades long track record of having had the good luck to never having to 'recover' a computer.

If everything is working fine for you, you can leave the programs installed/disabled.
In case you didn't see this link in the Cleanup Factory Bloatware tutorial, you might find it helpful.
HP Bloatware, or useful system utilities?
