WooCommerce by default comes with a lot of widgets installed. A lot of times these aren’t used anywhere as themes have their own code to display products. They can add back-end load and front-end load if you have them in sidebars or footers.
You can easily disable the following WooCommerce widgets globally with a single click:
- Active product filters
- Filter products by attribute
- Filter products by price
- Filter products by ratings
- Product categories
- Product search
- Product tag cloud
- Products by rating
- Recent product reviews
- Recently viewed products
