    typically, i never set any services to "disabled" simply because every windows installation is different depending on hardware, type of OS (pro, home, etc) and user/system configuration and if a service is "disabled" and is needed, it will not start and that could cause detrimental issues.
    i set non critical services to manual but keep critical services to their respective startup states of automatic.
    depending on your configuration, there may be some services that you may not want set to "manual" because some user/program interactions may not start those services (an example service is "nvidia display container LS", the nvidia graphic options dont appear when you "right click on blank desktop" > shell window
    setting some services to "manual" is a similar equivalent to "disabled" but those services will generally execute when it is "called" upon demand during a user or program interaction, not all of them will execute during user/program interaction though.
    ive attached a screen shot of the critical base services set to "automatic" for my configuration, windows 10 x64 pro (creators update 1703) (some services are greyed out and cannot be changed unless done through the registry, i left these alone as theres a reason why MS intended it to be that way and some services will change back to their previous startup state despite how many times you change it) though as i said, "critical" services will depend on your user/system configuration, hardware and type of OS.
    be aware though, there are more areas where programs can start up, this includes task scheduler and task manager > "startup" as well as "third ring" low level drivers.

    I have all those set like you have there. I'm using the home version. I disabled things like the bluetooth cause I don't use it and the homegroup stuff.

    just remember that its disabled in the event you use BT though windows should be smart enough by now to tell you that its disabled if you try to use it.
