    I think these services were created just after i entered my Hotmail account (microsoft account info) into windows 10 (For using Microsoft Store). Good luck

    The suffix_26fc94a (which I think is randomly assigned) is a giveaway. It seems that MS is adding "new stuff" all the time. Do you need "new stuff". I don't.

    I see no compelling reason to disable any of them, but I doubt there's any harm in doing so.
    If you've lived your whole life without them, you can continue without them. Mark them as disabled and see what happens. I doubt much will change.
