I'd like help figuring out the steps I need to take to make my tablet fast, also any advice on identifying bloatware I can safely remove, disable, and on improving the update settings so unused apps aren't updating in the background, and updates are happening at times I'm not using the tablet.

Solved! Go to Solution.
I went into the device care and cleared the background apps, but they just come back.
The only two apps I use regularly are Chrome and YouTube, I don't know what all this junk is and I don't know what's critical or what can be deleted/disabled/uninstalled.
Backup your photo's and documents and perform a Factory Data Reset which will delete everything and return your tablet to new condition.
Do not restore any Apps but instead manually install the ones that you currently use. You've probably installed loads of apps which are taking up RAM and Storage but you don't use.
Galaxy Fold 5 512g(VZW), Galaxy Book (original, VZW), Tab S8 Ultra, Tab S4, Galaxy Watch6Classic 47mm(VZW), Galaxy Watch5Pro(VZW), M8 Smart Monitor
Will that be a problem if my only internet connection is from this tablet?
Will I be able to get back online or will I need a secondary connection to get the tablet working again after resetting it?
My storage was around 27 / 32 GB but I deleted lots of videos and photos, now it's around 14 / 32 GB.
But it is still very slow.
I'm afraid to let the tablet download updates because I'm worried it will get slower. But maybe the newer versions would be faster?
