I want to organize the plugins to make QGIS open faster and get more memory from PC, but I don´t know what plugins are crucial for QGIS.

The Core plugins seems to be different...

Is there a place to see what are the plugins installed with QGIS at the very beginning?

    If you go into your QGIS directory (e.g. /QGIS 2.18/apps/qgis/plugins/), you can see the core providers and plugins which come with the installation. As @AndreJ mentioned, you cannot uninstall these from the manager so if you find one which you can uninstall, it would be an external plugin.

No plugins are really crucial to run QGIS. It just depends what you need.

You can uncheck all plugins, and uninstall all non-core plugins from the plugin manager. Core plugins can't be uninstalled with the manager.
