    Most of them with the exception .Net Framework and Powershell most people can do without (even then it depends on whether you're running programs that'll require .Net or running scripts/stuff in Powershell). The XPS stuff is useful for printing to file, so I wouldn't remove it.

    For the most part, anything that isn't disabled is OK to go. You can find out what's disabled by running;
    Code:
    DISM.exe /Online /English /Get-Features /Format:Table
    in Powershell.

    You used to be able to 'remove' these things from the hard drive (it falls back to Windows Update if you need them) but running this in WIN10 doesn't save any space it seems;

    Code:
    Get-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online | where { $_.State -match "Disabled" } | `    foreach { `
            $_ = $_.FeatureName; `
            DISM /Online /Disable-Feature /FeatureName:$_ /Remove `     }
    Running that in PowerShell should remove the features that are already disabled and save hard drive space but for whatever reason in WIN10 it doesn't.


    If you're looking to save hard drive space rebuilding the DISM image will shave off a few hundred MBs but you won't be able to remove updates afterwards as it'll delete the files needed to 'undo' updates up until that point.
    Code:
    DISM.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup /ResetBase
