How to Speed Up Your Windows 10 Performance! (New)
Optimizing Windows 10: cleaning startup
One of the major obstacles that most often slows down Windows 10 are programs that automatically start with the OS. Because of them, the computer takes longer to boot, and overall performance suffers severely. And the most interesting thing is that most people do not even know about these programs: the benefits are zero, and the resources are used.
We have described a lot of important information on optimizing Windows in our article “Optimizing Windows XP System Performance”
Disabling all unnecessary at startup is one of the reliable ways to speed up the work of Win 10. What you need for this?
- We go to the task manager. To do this, simultaneously press the button with the Win logo window, the R key, and in the line that appears, enter: taskmgr
- Open the “Startup” section.
- We sort all programs by clicking on the column “Impact on launch”.
- Among the most “gluttonous” tasks, we find all useless and disable.
How do you know what the system really needs to work and what is wasting memory? The easiest way is to google each of the “suspicious” programs: most likely, 90% of them you do not need at least. Autorun is often full of unnecessary software from the PC or laptop manufacturer, hidden adware or even spyware.
- Cloud storages (for example, in the case of the “ten”, OneDrive is automatically “registered” at startup).
- uTorrent, MediaGet and other programs for downloading. when you need, launch them separately. In addition, the constant distribution of torrents dramatically slows down Windows of any version.
- The official software that was loaded by default when installing a scanner, printer, or all-in-one printer. You are unlikely to use it, and the devices will work fine anyway.
To optimize Windows 10, we only clean the startup, the programs themselves will remain on the computer. So any of them, if necessary, you can start manually.
We turn off the services that load the system “idle
Developers cannot predict which services you will need. Therefore, the entire array is automatically started along with the OS. To speed up Windows 10 on a laptop or computer, it’s helpful to find unnecessary services that you personally don’t need and turn them off.
- Right-click Start / Computer Management.
- In the left menu we find the section “Services”.
- In the “Advanced” contribution you can read what each of the services does.
What to turn off and what is better not to touch? There are many lists circulating on the network, but we will focus on those services that can be turned off with little or no risk. Let’s start with the most “voracious”.
How to Speed Up Your Windows 10 Performance (Best Settings Ever)
- Update Center. it is better to periodically update the system manually.
- Windows Search. if you rarely search for something on your computer.
These services can be safely removed if the computer is not connected to a public network:
- KtmRm for Distributed Transaction Coordinator.
- Offline files.
- IPSec Policy Agent.
- Computer browser.
- NetBIOS Helper.
- Server Network Service.
The task of these services has already been taken over by the antivirus:
- Windows Defender.
How to Speed Up Your Windows 10 Performance (best settings)
These are useless in 99% of cases, but Windows 10 can slow down because of them:
- Adaptive brightness control.
- IP Helper.
- Secondary login.
- Changed links tracking client.
- IPsec Key Modules for Internet Key Exchange and Authenticated IP.
- SSDP detection.
- Parental Control.
- Error Logging Service.
- Remote registry.
Leave these only if you are using the appropriate devices:
- Smart card.
- Print Manager. For Printer.
- Image Download Service (WIA). for scanners and photo equipment.
- Bluetooth support. hardly anyone else uses bluetooth.
- Tablet PC Input Service. If You Are Not Using Inking.
- TPM core services. if no BitLocker or TMP-based monitoring devices are available.
Double click on it and in the window that appears in the line “Startup type” set “Disabled” / then “Apply” or “OK”.
We carry out “cleaning” among the installed software
It is worth keeping on a laptop or PC only the software that you really need. removing unnecessary programs will significantly speed up the operation of your computer on Windows 10.
- “Start” with the right button / From there go to the “Control Panel”.
- Open the section “Programs” / “Remove programs”.
- We are reviewing everything that is worth. Not using? Delete without hesitation. Not sure what this or that unfamiliar software is doing? In order not to remove anything you need, it is best to hammer the name into the search on the Internet.
You will feel the effect immediately. The result in the optimization of Windows 10 is especially clearly felt if the “rubbish” among the installed software has been accumulated decently. And this is most often the case, if you do not monitor it separately.
Removing unnecessary tiles from the Start menu
The system automatically places a set of live application tiles on the Start menu. Come in and see if you are using them?
We recommend that you leave only those that are really needed, and select the remaining rectangles with the right mouse button and select “Delete from the Start Menu”. This is not a panacea, but it will still slow down Windows 10 even a little less.
Turn off Windows 10 tracking
Yes, the “ten” really “spies” on our actions, regularly sending the collected information to Microsoft. The tracking function also consumes a certain amount of system resources. To optimize Windows 10 on slow computers, it’s best to turn it off.
Defragment (optimize) disks
It is especially good to carry out defragmentation after you have cleaned up “system junk”, removed some installed software, or manually deleted unnecessary files from your computer. This useful procedure restores the correct disk structure, which seriously speeds up Windows 10 on a weak computer.
- Click [Win R].
- In the window we type: dfrgui
- In the “Optimize disks” window that appears, click on the C drive / “Optimize”.
If you nevertheless took the time to radically clean non-system disks (removed everything heavy, but unnecessary from them), repeat the procedure for them (D, E, etc.)
Turn off menu transparency
This detail looks impressive, of course, but it also wastes precious memory.
- In the “Start” menu we find the line “Settings”.
- From there we go to “Personalization”.
- On the left in the column, select the item “Colors”.
- In the line “Make the Start menu, control panel and notification center transparent”, move the lever to the “Off” position.
