    Not if you don't need any of it. When you install, if you want to, you can select which parts you want to use.
    I started the Essentials install and then only selected the Mail, as that is what I wanted you use (Windows Live Mail 2012)

    Same here. I just use WLM 2012 on my Win 7, Win 8.1 and Win 10 machines.
