Windows 10 was launched with lots of advanced tweaks and options to make it one of the leading Windows version.
These systems were designed for swift and efficient performance. Though some room still remains there to make it more efficient and user-friendly. You can make certain tweaks to your Windows 10 to make it run faster and smoother.
Disable Unnecessary Startup Programs
One major reason behind the sluggish performance of your system is considered to be slow boot time due to a lot of unnecessary programs that run at startup. Stop all such programs from running at boot time by heading to Task Manager. To open Task Manager, Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc or right-click on the lower-left corner of your system to open the menu and select Task Manager from there. It will open a compact window now tap on “More Details” button. The task manager will now appear in a full-options window with a list of all programs and services that launch when you start Windows. To stop service or program from launching at boot time, right-click on the program and select “Disable” option. This step will prevent program or service running at Startup only. You can launch that program anytime later after startup process.
Disable Transparency and Special effects
Transparency and special effects consume a lot of system resources and make Windows 10 slow. To recover these precious system resources, disable these effects. To disable transparency effect, go to Start menu > Settings > Personalization > Colors and toggle off “Make Start, taskbar and action center transparent” option.
To disable special effects, go to Start menu > System > click on Advanced system settings to open System Properties menu. Now select Settings and Performance to open Performance Options menu. Now under Visual Effects tab either select “Adjust for best performance” to turn off all unnecessary effects and animations or select Custom to deselect any unnecessary visual effect (s). Click OK to apply your changes.
Remove unnecessary files
Your system accumulates a lot of unnecessary files over time that occupies a lot of disk space affecting system performance negatively. These unnecessary files include temporary files, log files, cache & cookies, duplicate files and other junk files. When we talk about duplicate files on your system they accumulate in large number in form of duplicate music files, audio files, video files, pictures, and lot more. You can remove these duplicate files manually or you can use certain files to instantly recover some disk space on your system.
Launch the Windows troubleshooter
Windows 10 offers an in-built tool to fix performance related problems on your system. To launch Windows Troubleshooter, go to Start menu and type “troubleshooting” in the search box. Select “troubleshooting Control Panel” from the given options. Now click on “Run maintenance tasks” in the System and Security section of the screen. It will open a screen titled “Troubleshoot and help prevent computer problems” click Next. It will automatically find all files and shortcuts that you generally don’t use and find other performance related issues, report them to you and then help you fix them.
