Personally, Windows 10 is the best OS from Microsoft. Though it has some bad side but has far more appreciable side.Â The general consensus seems to be that itâ€™s an improvement on previous editions.
In this post, you are going to get some tips and tricks on how to speed up Windows 10. If you are seeing slowdowns or sluggish boot times, here is what you should do.
Keeping your Windows 10 installation up to date is crucial for both security and performance.
ManyÂ softwareÂ updates aim to increase the performance of applications or fix bugs which can cause system slowdowns in certain situations.
Additionally, maintaining a regular update schedule will help protect your machine from malicious applications and will patch vulnerabilities.
Keeping your system updated will also reduce the chance of app incompatibility and will keep your PC healthier for a longer period of time.
Disable UnnecessaryÂ Startup Apps
Many applications are set to run at startup once installed and can have a significant effect on your systemâ€™s boot time.
To control which applications run at startup, launch yourÂ Task ManagerÂ by pressingÂ Control + Shift + Escape, and navigate to the Startup tab.
From here, you can see which apps are set to run at startup and disable programs which you do not use immediately after starting up.
Disable Shadow and Animation effects
If you find that your hardware sometimes struggles to manage multipleÂ windows, you can get it to run faster by disabling effects.
To begin this process, press the Windows Key + R to open the Run interface, enter â€œSysdm.cplâ€ into the field, and press Enter.
This will open the System Properties Window.
Navigate to theÂ Advanced tabÂ >> selectÂ SettingsÂ under theÂ Performance section.
From this window, you can manually adjust visual settings to tweak your Windows 10 effects to your preference, or simply select â€œAdjust for best performanceâ€ to disable all visual effects.
But if youâ€™d prefer to choose manually, we recommend unchecking the following:
- Animate controls and settings inside windows
- Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing
- Animations in the taskbar
- Fade or slide menus into view
- Fade or slide Tool Tips into view
- Fade out menu items after clicking
- Show shadows under windows
After doing this, you should notice some immediate differences with your computerâ€™s speed.
Utilize Disk Clean UP
Windows 10 built in a Disk Cleanup tool for you to get rid of unnecessary files from storage which may be slowing down your system.
To open it, just click theÂ Start buttonÂ and selectÂ File Explorer. Then, right-click onÂ Local Disk C:Â and selectÂ Properties. Find the General tab and from there click Disk Cleanup.
Run System Maintenance
Windows 10 features an Automatic Maintenance tool which runs a number of maintenance tasks in the background.
By default, this maintenance feature runs tasks daily at 02:00, and its schedule is configurable from the Settings menu.
If you do not wish to wait until the next scheduled maintenance, you can run the maintenance process manually from this menu.
How To Make Windows 10 Faster on Start UP
Windows 10 gives you the option to select a hybrid startup mode that cuts down on boot up time by just putting the PC into hibernation rather than fully shutting down.
To enable this, click Start and type in â€œControl Panelâ€ and press enter. From here, click Hardware and Sound. On the new page that appears, click â€œChange what the power buttons doâ€ under Power Options. Next, click â€œChange settings that are currently unavailableâ€ and check the box marked â€œTurn on fast startup.â€
And that is all, you now have a quicker startup.
