If you're only looking to use Bitcoin Core as a wallet, you can still prune the blockchain. This would still benefit the network in general, just to a lesser extent.

I have 2 questions-
1. How to prune the blockchain? pruning happens after downloading the core or before. As suggested by ETFBitcoin also, a pruned blockchain will be prudent?

2. i intend to use the Core as a wallet. what more can be done with a full node?

If you're absolutely have no idea what to do, i suggest you to share your hardware specification and OS you use since each hardware/OS have different configuration and optimization.

I am going to use my laptop for this. its a 64bit windows 10 pro, 8GB RAM, with 500GB HD (Free-300GB). will this free space be sufficient.

If you're unsure about the requirements (RAM, disk size etc.) and want a more detailed guide, read this article:

I am gonna follow the windows setup mentioned here.
