I am a senior with an HP laptop approx. 3 years old, and I know I have junked it up over this period of time.Is there a list of programs I can delete that are unnecessary, as my computer is running slow, and I have 70 processes, and I know this is high. Thanks for any advise.

Several ways to paste after you copy the text:


Right click in the reply area and choose Paste.




Click the icon that looks like this  in the editor toolbar paste.png

Paste the text then click OK.




Press ctrl v at the same time (this can also be used if using one of the methods above)
