CPU Usage Constantly at 100%, Even While Doing Light Tasks

Hello! This has been a consistent problem over the years, but it is only getting more and more noticeable as of recently. Even while performing light tasks such as running Microsoft Edge and LibreOffice cause my laptop to get overworked and start chugging. Fans whirring, computer struggling. Running things like YouTube is damn near unbearable, and running any other programs is impossible. I'm at my wits end. My laptop is a 2018 Dell Inspiron 15 3565 so I don't understand the reason for such lag and slowness. My specs are listed below, under the System Properties tab. 

What could possibly be the issue? I have my system configured for performance, set my battery settings for higher performance, and keep my disk relatively clean. 

Hi, I'm Mario, an independent advisor and I'd be happy to help with your issue.
We are sorry about what happened.

When there is slowness in the computer, and taking into consideration everything you mentioned about hardware configuration (you have a good computer), I believe that replacing your HDD with SSD would greatly improve performance.

To make the change you must first perform the cloning with the specific tool. On the internet there are many help tutorials for this purpose.

Always backup your files to avoid problems, ok?
