We cannot deny that Windows 10 it is the best operating system that Microsoft I have always been developing, I must honestly say that I am delighted with said OS and that it generally works quite well and you don’t need to optimize it too much to make it run smoothly, although that will also depend on the computer you have.
Although in any case you want to improve its performance even more, we are going to show you step by step how you should do to achieve it.
Speeding up Windows 10 startup
In order to speed up the start of Windows you’re going to have to press Windows + R and then type MSCONFIG, after this hit enter. Once there we go to where it says Windows Start and you are going to see the programs that start with the OS, we recommend you to deactivate all those that you think are not necessary.
Disable visual effects
We cannot deny that they are beautiful, but in my personal case I have a powerful computer with an SSD and even though it is not slow at all, from the impression between so many animations and effects that it is exactly very slow. To deactivate the master effects go to control panel, then let’s go to system and securityOnce there we have to go to advanced system configuration and right there in advanced options, here we go to performance to finish in configuration. Let’s go where it says “Adjust for best performance and go”Although it is clear that you can deactivate and activate whatever you think is appropriate.
Windows 10 basically uses you as a torrent, so other users can download the updates. Something that consumes Internet connection Without a doubt. To deactivate it we will go to Windows Update, then to Advanced options and right there we are going to go to where it says to choose the way in which the updates are delivered to deactivate the option that says updates from more than one place.
Cortana is also annoying, let’s disable it
It consumes resources and generally no one uses it, at least no one they know. To deactivate it, we are going to click on the search box, then on the gear and right there we deactivate the Cortana box.
Another recommendation in case you have a HDD is that you make one defragmentation of the same, for that you must press Windows + R and then write dfrgui. In case you have a bone SSD, a solid disk, you do not have to do this, rather, do not do it, it is not recommended at all, only if you have a bone HDD, a normal disk of a lifetime, should you do a defragmentation.
