Do I need this live essentials package still?
What programs does it use?

I upgraded to 10 shortly after the general window to do so was open back in the middle of the year, and I downloaded and installed this as soon as I could, primarily for email as the built-in one is not conducive to my way of working.
Here is some Microsoft documentation on it:
You can choose the components you install. If you don't need or want it, then just uninstall it in the usual way.
I use Office 2013 mail..... is that the same as essentials mail?

No, they're not. Do you mean this:
That's a paid product. Essentials 2012 is free.
Yes I have the paid product of Office 2013..... so do I need Essentials?
Probably not, no. But look to see if you have some packages installed that aren't included with Office 2013. It all boils down to what you need it for.
I wouldnt know where to start...
You could start by doing a little web research independently. However, since you haven't, take a look at the Windows Essentials webpage and see if you use one or more of the programs that make up Windows Essentials that are shown on the bottom of the page
No one here can know what programs you may or may not be using that are part of that suite or which may or may not have been installed, because you can select specific ones. I've only ever installed Windows Live Mail to test it. OneDrive is coming standard with Windows, though, even though it's included in Essentials.
If the list on yoru link is conclusive then the only thing i use is windows moveie maker.......
That's probably your answer then.
Britechguy, your Windows Essentials link is pretty much the same as mine, except that mine takes you to the UK variant and yours to the US one.
so I need to leave it alone as I use this program.....?
