How to speed up your laptop 10x

Increasing your Windows 10 settings will help you get faster speeds and more efficiency out of your computer if you’re experiencing slowdowns and decreased performance. Even though Windows 10 is one of the best operating systems available right now, it has a number of features that can cause your computer to run worse by using a lot of system resources. To increase overall efficiency, Microsoft even included built-in functions in its most recent edition of Windows 10. Your PC may still experience sluggish performance.

Look for the Most Recent Changes
Open the Windows menu, choose Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Check for Updates to begin the process of checking for updates. If there are any updates available, choose Install immediately. Try restarting your computer to see if it performs better.

Restart your computer.
Every day, when you shut down your computer, its memory is refreshed, enabling it to function at its best the following day. If you’ve found your PC slowing down in ordinary daily chores such as opening programs or accessing files or documents, try shutting down or restarting your PC. Before you turn off or restart your computer, make sure you have saved your work.

Turn Off Program Launching at Startup
Open Task Manager, select the Startup tab, and then uncheck the apps that launch at startup. You can discover whether programs have a high to low influence on your startup by looking at the “Startup impact” column. The ones causing your system’s performance to slow down are the ones with a big influence.

Select ‘Disable’ from the menu when you right-click on an application to prevent it from starting automatically.

Cleanup of the disk
Open your Windows menu and find ‘Disk Cleanup’ by searching for it in the search field. It will give you a list of program files to remove. Tick the box next to each file name to select the ones you wish to remove. Click “Clean up system files” once you’ve chosen every file you wish to delete. Disk Cleanup will determine how much disk space it will clear up.

Use this chance to delete any additional files or programs that are consuming excessive RAM or disk space. You might find unnecessary and outdated files to remove by looking through your Downloads folder.

Get Rid of Outdated Software
Your computer may be slowing down because of other installed programs that you seldom use. Visit this link to view the installed apps:

Control panel > Features and Programs > Take a Program Offline
Select “Uninstall” with a right-click on any apps that you no longer require.

Turn off the special effects
Translucency and animations are examples of unique features that can slow down your pace.

Look for “System” in the Windows menu after opening it. Navigate to the “Advanced System Settings” menu, then pick “Performance Settings” under the “Advanced” tab. Select the “Custom” radio button after selecting the “Visual Effects” tab. You can uncheck the boxes to disable the visual effects shown there. When you’re finished, click “Apply” to validate your modifications.

Turn off the transparency effects.
Open the Windows menu, put “color settings” into the search bar, and select the Windows 10 Color options to turn off the transparency effects. Proceed to scroll down until you come across the “Transparency effects” button. To activate or deactivate the transparency effects, click the button.

Perform system maintenance.
One of Windows 10’s built-in features handles regular system maintenance. They consist of chores like defragmenting the hard disk, checking for updates, and scanning for viruses and malware.

When your computer is not in use, system maintenance often runs in the background. However, if you want to manually perform it in case there is a problem, you can do so.

Open the Control Panel and choose “Security and Maintenance” to accomplish this. To broaden the maintenance options, click the arrow and choose “Start Maintenance.” A manual system maintenance check will be possible.

Invest in RAM upgrade
Upgrading your RAM, which expands the amount of memory in your system, is one dramatic approach to boost the speed and performance of your PC.

To find out how much RAM is in your laptop, follow these steps:

Simultaneously press the Ctrl, Alt, and Delete keys.
Choose Task Manager.
Select Performance from the menu, then click Memory.
The amount of RAM that is accessible and in use will be displayed. The total RAM capacity is displayed in the window’s upper right corner.

It can be challenging to determine the exact amount of RAM your laptop requires, but if it is less than 25% of the total when used frequently, it can be worthwhile to update.


The speed and functionality of your PC can be significantly increased by upgrading your RAM. Click “Performance” after launching Task Manager (Ctrl + Alt + Delete) to see the precise RAM your computer requires. You can see the number of RAM slots that the computer has accessible as well as the kind of RAM, such DDR4. Find out more about upgrading RAM.

Make a Storage Upgrade
Your computer’s speed and performance can be significantly increased by upgrading your storage. The majority of PCs are shipped with spinning disk hard drives (HDDs), but upgrading to a solid-state drive (SSD) increases the capacity of your system.

To ascertain the amount of storage on your laptop:

After selecting Windows, type Settings.
Choose the System.
Storage comes next.

Although SSDs are often more expensive than HDDs, the benefits in terms of faster system startup times, program loads, and overall responsiveness may make the price difference worthwhile.
