I recently purchased a Y7000 Legion laptop. It's been a great machine so far. However, there are two problems with Windows that I can't figure out how to fix:
How can I fix both of these problems? The Windows representative I talked with said that the undesired programs were probably caused by Lenovo's software. I would really appreciate being able to have full control over my Start Menu and the programs installed on my computer.

If your laptop arrived with Windows 10 pre-installed, you have a Windows 10 license code embedded in the BIOS. This means that you are perfectly entitled to download a Windows 10 install image from Microsoft and install it on your system (replacing the Lenovo version of Windows 10). The Microsoft version of Windows 10 will activate automatically the first time that you connect to the internet.
Note: although the Microsoft version of Windows 10 will be free from Lenovo bloatware, it will still contain Microsoft bloatware (e.g. a trial copy of Microsoft "Word").

Uninstall the store applications and block Microsoft's store updates.
You can uninstall using uninstall apps like portable GeekUninstaller (view-Microsoft Store apps)..
I use 10AppsManager for Windows 10 : https://www.thewindowsclub.com/10appsmanager-windows-10
