How to speed up your PC running Windows 10
1. Disable programs never use
One of the reasons why Windows 10 PC is slow because of the many programs running in the background. Usually, these programs are rare and never used at all.
You can open Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc). Click More Details to access the Task Manager more fully. To turn off running programs in the background, select Startup.
You will see various programs and services that work when you open Windows. To ‘shut down’ the programs or services that are running at startup, right-click and select “Disable.”
Do not worry because this does not ‘turn off’ the application completely, because this program only stops working every time you turn on your PC or laptop again.
For those of you who are not sure whether the program is important or not, you can see more details of the program by right click and select Properties.
2. Turn off Shadow Feature, Animation, and Effects
Windows 10 does look more interesting with effects and animations than previous versions of Windows.
Although it looks interesting, for PC users or laptops with a rudimentary specification and an old series, its performance will definitely slow down.
For those of you who use a PC or laptop with a low specification, you can easily turn off those features.
Type sysdm.cpl in the search box and press Enter. This will display a box that says System Properties. Click the Advanced tab and click Settings in the Performance section.
This will bring up the Performance Options box that displays various animation lists and effects. To improve the performance of your PC, you may want to turn off some of the following features:
