    I agree, but it all depends on how much is running in the background, a factory preloaded Windows installation can easily add 50 processes or more.

    This is before and after I reinstalled W10 on my brothers new laptop:

    155-160 processes means a bloated system. 200 is awful.

    Yup, it's a tweak for changing the setting in the link I posted, thanks.

    This is what happened when I changed it on my laptop.

    Default settings Windows 1809: 166 processes
    Pre 1703 settings: 113 processes
    When I used Windows 8.1: about 85 processes

    This is hardly a problem for the OP though, maybe it's a preloaded Windows installation with extra bloatware?

    That's one thing but he has couple of streaming apps, VPNs, Steam/Origin etc which will easily surpass 200 processes
    That disk usage and process count is similar to mine.

    It changed after 1803, or was it 1709. Before, each servicehost.exe process would combine multiple services together. Now each service (mostly) gets its own svchost.exe.

    It was changed so that trouble shooting and isolating one specific misbehaving service would be much easier. Apart from the extra process count and slightly more RAM used, there should be no differences. My C0%/Package C8% residency hasn't changed so the new system isn't wasting any CPU cycles. Though that being said, back in 2015 when Windows 10 was released, it used about 1.1GB of Ram. Now it seems to use 2.0GB on startup. Back in Windows 8.1 I could get the process count down to 30 or so. But now I find myself using more features like Onedrive, your phone, search etc that really depend on services that I had previously disabled. It really annoys me.

    On my tweaked XP, only 18 process, on win 7 it was 30 process and in Win 10 160 process.
