Windows 10- Easy Ways to Improve Your PC’s Performance

If you are using Windows 10 and are interested in boosting your PC’s performance without hardware modifications, there are several things one can do to achieve this. First, you should perform the simple tasks, such as updating windows and other programs, disabling unnecessary programs that run automatically at startup, checking memory, memory usage, and disk space, creating and using restore points and proper virus and malware protection, and checking and protecting against malware and viruses. Corrupted files can also be a problem and should be checked frequently. Proper defragmentation should be done frequently by clicking the start button, then file explorer link, right-click local disk C:, then properties, tools, then click “optimize and defragment the drive.”

If you are using an SSD, you will not need to do this as they do not need fragmentation. If your computer has a less-than-ideal graphics card, turning off or limiting specific visual effects such as shadows and unnecessary animations can help tremendously. Disabling transparency effects can gain an increase in responsiveness and adds that classic look that some might like and can quickly be done by right-clicking the desktop and choosing personalize, then colors, then turn off “make start, taskbar, and action center transparent.”

OneDrive is also a labor-intensive program that runs in the background that can cause sluggish system behavior. By following these guidelines and the many other tips and tricks out there for improving your PC’s performance using Windows 10, you will be able to grab every bit of speed from your aging system or make your monster high-end gaming rig even faster. I hope this information helps you, and feel free to follow the link below for more information. Happy gaming!
