7 Tips to Speed Up Windows 10 Computer by 100%

In last week, we published an article “7 tips to speed up Android phone“. Today we are going to share 7 tips to speed up windows 10 computers. For your convenience, we attached some screenshot with this article. Before going to start these tips, I am happy to announce that in this month (01 March-29March) Technical Diary got  total 2851 Email from readers. Let’s start with following tips.

1). Disable Startup Programs

You might be shocked to discover how many programs load automatically every time when you boot your PC. Each one slows down the boot process a bit, and some may continue to slow down windows after the boot as well.

So it’s better to prevent those applications from launching at startup to speed up the PC .  To see how bad the situation is, right-click the taskbar and select task Manager, and Click the startup tab or press Ctrl+Shift+Escape to launch it (If you don’t see any tabs at the top of the windows , click More Details in the lower left corner). Click over to the Startup tab and disable startup applications you don’t need.


2). Close System Tray Programs

Many applications tend to run in the system tray or notification area. These applications often launch at startup and stay running in the background but remain hidden behind the up arrow icon at the bottom-right corner of your screen. Click the up arrow icon near the system tray, right-click any applications you don’t need running in the background, and close them to free up resources.

3). Reduce Animations

Windows uses quite a few animations, and those animations can make your PC a bit slower. For example, Windows can minimize and maximize windows instantly if you disable the associated animations.

To disable animations, press Windows Key + X or right-click the Start button and select “System.” Click “Advanced System Settings” on the left and click the “Settings” button under Performance. Choose “Adjust for best performance” under Visual Effects to disable all the animations, or select “Custom” and disable the individual animations you don’t want to see. For example, uncheck “Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing” to disable the minimize and maximize animations.

4). Uninstall Programs You Don’t Use

Open the Control Panel, find the list of installed programs, and uninstall programs you don’t use and don’t need from your PC. This can help speed your PC up, as those programs might include background processes, autostart entries, system services, context menu entries, and other things that can slow down your PC. It’ll also save room on your hard drive and improve system security — for example, you definitely shouldn’t have Java installed if you’re not using it.

5). Make Your Web Browser lighten.

There’s a good chance you use your web browser a lot, so your web browser may just be a bit slow. It’s a good idea to use as few browser extensions, or add-ons, as possible — those slow down your web browser and cause it to use more memory.

Go into your web browser’s Extensions or Add-ons manager and remove add-ons you don’t need. You should also consider enabling click-to-play plugins. Preventing Flash and other content from loading will prevent unimportant Flash content from using CPU time.

6). Scan for Malware and Adware

There’s also a chance, your computer is slow because of malicious software, malicious software  is slowing it down and running in the background. This may not be flat-out malware,  it may be software that interferes with your web browsing to track it and add additional advertisements. So my advice is that, make your computer extra safe.

To be extra safe, scan your computer with an antivirus program is not enough. You should also scan it with Malwarebytes, which catches a lot of “potentially unwanted programs” (PUPs) that most antivirus programs tend to ignore. These programs try to sneak onto your computer when you install other software, and you almost certainly don’t want them.

7). Reset Your PC / Reinstall Windows

If the above tips didn’t fix your problem, the one timeless solution to speed up windows 10 by 100% — aside from rebooting your PC, of course — is getting a fresh Windows installation.

On modern versions of Windows — that is, Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 — it’s easier to get a fresh Windows installation than ever. You don’t have to get Windows installation media and reinstall Windows. Instead, you can simply use the “Reset your PC” feature built into Windows to get a new, fresh Windows system. This is similar to reinstalling Windows and will wipe your installed programs and system settings while keeping your files.
