    control Panel;programs;windowsfeatures turn off and on


    i came across this feature by accident . but as i read the window instructions i noticed that a few of my boxes were shaded in which means that only part of windows features was working. this got my curiosity up bc i have a whole army of problems stemming from my 2 in one Lenovo Flex 11 (model FLEX 6). the shaded boxes were PRINTING AND DOCUMENTS- yes problems here

    NET FRAMEWORK 4.7 ADVANCED SERVICES and SMB 1.0/cif file storing services.

    My question is simple- is not the FRamework an essential component to insure windows 10 is working properly and if yes should i check the other boxes so that the box becomes a checked box so that it is fully functioning?

    And on that note, why would i want only partial features working on my Lenovo or any computer for that matter? could this be a source to the root of all my problems???

    THank you in advance for help.

    :)
