10 Tips to Speed Up Windows 10

Uninstall Crapware 1. That extra preinstalled software installed by  PC makers continues to be an issue with new  computers. Most New PC and laptops have nearly 20 so-called  helper programs installed, and these would  occasionally and unwantedly pop up and  interrupt what I was doing on the computer. 2. Limit Startup Processes A lot of programs install side processes that  run every time you start your PC, and some of  them are not things you need running on your  system all the time. Compared with Windows.  7, in which you had to run the MSCONFIG  utility, Windows 10 (and Windows 8.x before it)  gives you a new, easier way to limit what runs  at startup—from the updated Task Manager. 3. Clean Up Your Disk From the Start menu, type Disk Cleanup. This  opens the trusty Disk Cleanup utility that's  been part of Windows for several generations  of the OS. Disk Cleanup finds unwanted junk  and files such as temporary files, offline Web  pages. 4. Add More RAM Windows 10 isn't as much of a hog as earlier  versions of the OS, but more memory is  always a way to speed up PC operations. 5. Install an SSD Drive  installed a solid-state (SSD) Upgrade is a  remarkable speedup.

Check for Viruses and Spyware

6. You can run the built-in Windows Defender or  a third-party app to do this. 7. Change Power Settings to Maximum  Performance  Of course, this isn't a good choice if you want  to save electricity, but it could boost your  computing. 8. Use the Performance Troubleshooter  In Cortana's search box next to the Start  button, type troubleshooting and under  System and Security, you'll see the choice  Check for performance issues. 9. Change Appearance in Performance  Options Dialog  You can easily get to this by typing adjust  appearance in Cortana. 10. Turn off Search Indexing  Especially for lower-powered PCs, search  indexing can eat up system resources, if only  temporarily. If you do a lot of searching, this  won't appeal to you, as some searches will be  slower. To turn off indexing, open the Indexing  Options Control Panel window (you can also  just type index in the Start button search box,  and you should see Indexing Options at the  top of the result list), click Modify and remove  locations being indexed and file types, too.
