Solved!

Giving away laptop, privacy issues

HP Recommended
HP Notebook - 15-bs212wm
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I don't have many personal files on this computer.  I can just delete them along with my email accounts and One Drive account.  This laptop has HP Support Assistant.  Which programs or apps should I delete to eliminate my ownership information and personal information?
