    The list given in the linked page mentions a 32GB drive but experience for me has shown that 64GB is a better minimum for the latest couple four Version Upgrades of Win10, not enough room. I have 2 nice light small Notebooks that can't run Win10 on 32GB but do quite well with Linux Mint needing only a third of that space, has kept the Notebooks out of the landfill as the 'drives' are not changeable.
    Windows 10 Minimum System Requirements

    • Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster compatible processor or System on a Chip (SoC)
    • RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) for 32-bit or 2 GB for 64-bit
    • Hard disk space: 32 GB or larger
    • Graphics card: DirectX 9 or later with WDDM 1.0 driver
    • Display: 800x600 screen resolution

    I just leave "Game Mode" on permanently, that is the Default. No reason not to, however you will not notice any difference.

    I still get a rare unrelated notification with some games, so it helps, but is not 100% effective.

    Games are just another Application, so if your PC is specced properly, is maintained and running well then so will games.
