-What kind of drive do you have installed?

-How much space is available on the drive?

-Check for unnecessary processes starting on boot

 

Also, won't open games? Won't open, or just slow?

Hard drive or ssd or GPU drive. And it won't open anything sometimes only a few like steam, discord, and control panel.

And I am new to this so I don't know a lot about the hardware

If you open task manager, go to the "Performance" tab, then select the C : drive, as seen below:

 

(C : is the drive your computer boots from, and if it's slow, that could be causing your problems).
