Make Windows 10 Super Fast
Windows 10 is way better than any of its predecessor, some still are using the Windows 7, while other may be using these alternative operating systems. Apart from some forced ads and pre-defined settings Windows 10 is the best operating system the world has ever seen.
Windows 10 Performance Tweaks
Follow these top 10 checklist and make sure you computer is running the Windows 10 as it supposed — faster.
1. Remove Built-in ads (Apps & Games)
The drill down of our ten best ways to speed up Windows 10 and improving the overall performance.
Microsoft starts suggesting apps and games often in the start menu, but sometimes it automatically does install some Apps and Games, it comes under the Microsoft terms, so there is nothing wrong about it. Since you own the computer and have a reasonable choice whether or not let Microsoft decide what to install on your computer.
2. Disable Animations & Visual Effects
There are some setting in the Windows 10 that you can get advantage by limiting the animation and visual effects that directly affect the system performance. It will dramatically increase the system performance, though, you will be missing those beautiful animations. To disable windows animations and visual effects you need to open the performance options. To do that click on the start button and type “performance options” and select the “Adjust for best performance” option under the very first tab Visual Effects. An another option to open those settings is through the Run box, press Win + R key, type “SystemPropertiesPerformance” hit the enter key.
But as you can see in the image, I opted to have a few options turned on. Another way to reduce system level animation: Head to Settings > Ease of Access > and turning off the “play animation in Windows” option. There is another option to remove the desktop background, but I don’t recommend blacking out your desktop screen, it won’t look good either.
3. Color Settings
Open Settings > Personalisation > Taskbar and disable the taskbar transparency or custom colors. Use a solid color instead of a transparent accent color. This is very useful to increase the performance and to speed up your Windows 10. Check the following guide to disable the transparent colors in the taskbar and from the start menu.
QuickTip: Disable all the options under the “Colors” settings.
It will not impact much or save lot of RAM or increase performance. However, disabling search options will make them function smoothly.
4. Increasing Virtual Memory
In the case, your computer has not-enough RAM to handle the windows 10 operating system you can use increase the Virtual Memory so your apps won’t crash and the system won’t lag or freeze the next time. To increase or adjust virtual memory follow the below guide.
5. Removing Temporary Files
It’s very basic, the more garbage will be on your computer, the slow computer will work. Though, defragmenting should be enough to run your computer as fast as it could be with your hardware spec. But when your computer does a Windows Update it increases the number of temporary files. This can indirectly affect your computer’s speed, and this is advised that you clear these temporary files once a month. Or twice in a year. There are multiple ways to delete temporary files, follow the below-detailed guide.
6. Disable Features
If your concern is RAM consumption, you can literally disable programs and features to save ram whenever possible. Please note that disabling program might interrupt other applications or features. It is unlikely that we are recommending you to disable all those Windows programs and features. Use your common sense and disable programs that you rarely use.
5.1 Windows Update: Well you can disable automatic updates to save both bandwidth and to avoid processor stress when apps are being updated, very often. But you should know that you won’t be able to download apps from Windows store, neither purchase music or TV shows, you’ll have to re-enable Windows update to make them work.
5.2 Cortana: Cortana is no doubt useful, even funny and funnier sometimes, and understands loads of commands and questions. Update: Do you know in a new leaked Windows 10 build, the Cortana is hard wired to work from the beginning, such while Windows 10 is installing.
5.3 IE11: Internet Explorer shouldn’t be there when an advanced Edge browser is there. IE 11 can be uninstalled using the “add or remove windows features” app.
7. Removing and disabling programs
 Uninstalling Programs: You should remove all those installed programs such as rarely used programs.
 Disabling startup programs: You can save some RAM and CPU stress by disabling the programs when windows start. To do that open Task manager and from the “startup” tab and see if there are unwanted programs you can disable. Disabling driver related program has not advised either program those publishers is Microsoft or Google.
8. Refresh your Computer.
A fresh installation is required when your Windows 10 is totally messed up, here are a few guides that will help you from Downloading a Windows 10 iso to Installing on your computer.
9. Make Windows 10 boot faster.
However, if you do all the above steps regularly your Windows 10 will boot as fast as it can, a normal Windows 10 Boot is 30 Seconds. Ensure that the “Fast startup” option is turned on. To check search “Power Options” > what the power buttons do > under shutdown Settings, tick the “Turn on fast startup” option. Also, note that you won’t be able to toggle the fast startup option unless you click on the top button that reads ‘Change settings that are currently unavailable.’
10. Choose according to your case.
I am not imposing this on you. You do not need to copy all the steps precisely. Just use common sense, analyze your computer and apply methods according to them in order to make your windows 10 faster.
