My windows 10 PC was running very slow lately. To fix this, these are the few simple techniques I used. These techniques basically cleans up the PC with junk or temporary files, decreases the usage of memory by unwanted programs and files, changing some default animation settings and all
1 . Disc clean up :
The function of disc clean up is that it removes all the junk files and temporary files which definitely are responsible for the pc to run slower. So, let’s see how it’s done!
First click on the start menu and search for disc clean up, you will find a desktop application, select that. Then the system disc clean up starts scanning. Once the scanning is done, all the files that are ready to be deleted are displayed. Mark all the files that are useless. Now click ok.
The process is done and this doesn’t show any result, but it surely has an impact on speeding up the PC.
2. Disc check :
Open up “This PC” and find disc C. Right click on it and open the properties of disc C, click on tools and hit on check. Now scan your drive, all it does is, it finds all the corrupt files and fixes all the errors.
3. Adjusting settings for better performance:
Now, Search for system and open “System”. Now, click on the advanced settings. Under performance, open settings. Mark the “Adjust for best performance” and hit apply, you are almost done now… There are screenshots I took during this setting.
4. High performance through power options :
This technique is helpful in limiting the power consumption and increases the performance of PC. To do this search for power “options” from the bottom left search on the desktop. Open it and mark “High performance”.
5. Deleting temporary files :
The temporary files are mostly useless. They occupy useful memory space and contribute for the slowing down of a PC. So, to delete them. Right click on start, click on run and type in “%temp%” and hit ok. It displays all the temporary files, delete them all.
6. Resetting :
Not satisfied with the speed yet? Even after all of them, try resetting your PC. What this does is, it resets all the setting of the PC to its factory settings and deletes all the softwares. In order to reset, search for reset, open reset this PC and read carefully before you reset your PC. If you perform “Advanced reset” it clears all the files and programs, so you need to backup all your files before doing this.
These are few techniques which can help your PC run faster!
