How to speed up your computer
How to speed up your computer? Why is my computer so slow? This is a common problem for many computer users. Today, I’m going to teach you how to speed up your computer as well as. Usually, a computer is much faster than when we first took. But over time, the computer slows down. There are many reasons why a computer can slow down. Today, we are going to identify the problem of slowing down the computer and resolve those issues. First let’s see what causes the computer to slow down.
- Power Option (If you are using laptop)
- Disable unnecessary startup programs
- Defragment your hard drive
- Remove unnecessary temporary files
- Cleanup memory
Let us consider each of the above.
(1) Power Option
This is important only if you use a Laptop. Go to search and type, “Power Option.” Then click on the power option.
Then you will get control panel power option window. Your default power plan is set as “Balanced.” Change it as a “High performance.” As in the picture below.
(2) Disable unnecessary startup programs
Unnecessary startup programs will slow down your computer’s Startup speed. To disable unnecessary startup programs, you have to open the “Task Manager.” Right click on the Taskbar, then click on the “Task Manager.” Then you can access the “Task Manager.” Or you can press the keyboard combination CTRL+SHIFT+ESC buttons. Then, “Task Manager” will open up.
Now click on the “startup.” Then you can see there are lots of programs that don’t we need. Some programs here are essential to us. So be very careful when disabling them. To disable, right click on the program and click disable. Do not disable antivirus programs.
(3) Defragment your hard drive
In time, the data in your hard disk will start to spread across the hard drive. Your computer will have more time to read the data because it is not able to read those data in your hard drive. Defragmentation can overcome that issue. For that go to search and type, “Defragment.” Then click on the “Defragment and optimize your drives.”
First click on one hard drive partition. After, click on the “Analyze” button, and then click on “optimize” button.
Optimize all the partition one at a time. Don’t do any other work on the computer while this is happening. In the meantime, if you try to do something else, your computer will slow down, and your data could be compromised.
(4) Remove unnecessary temporary files
We have to do this in three ways. Firstly, you need to open, “Run.” Press the keyboard combination Windows key + R to open Run and type, “%temp%” and press Enter button.
So, you can see there are a lot of files inside this.
These are all unnecessary files. Since these are temporary files, delete all of them at once. Deleting these files will not harm your computer’s data. So delete all the files.
Open the “Run” again. Now type, “temp” and press Enter button. So, you can see there are a lot of files inside this. These are all unnecessary files. Since these are temporary files, delete all of them at once.
Open the “Run” again. Now type, “prefetch” and press Enter button. So, you can see there are a lot of files inside this. These are all unnecessary files. Since these are temporary files, delete all of them at once.
Open the “Run” again. Now type “recent” and press Enter button. So, you can see there are a lot of files inside this. These are all unnecessary files. Since these are temporary files, delete all of them at once.
(5) Cleanup Memory
Go to My Computer (This PC or My PC) and select one partition. Then right click on it and click properties.
Just click on the “Disk cleanup.” After scan finished, you will get new Window. In the new window, just click “ok” and also click “delete files.” Don’t be scared, it will only delete unnecessary files.
After all, Restart (Reboot) your computer. If you did all this right, your computer is now running in optimal condition.
