Speed Up Your Windows 10 Machine With These Helpful Hints

The first you can do to speed up your Windows 10 computer is to check which of the programs that you’ve installed are slowing the PC down. These software can have updates, or perhaps it’s not fully-compatible with the newer operating system, or they are just plainly badly written. These can cause them to monopolize a bunch of your computer’s resources. In order to see what these programs are, you can open up the Task Manager in your PC.

To open the Task Manager in your Windows 10  PC, it’s as simple as clicking on the Start Menu then typing in Task Manager. Pick the topmost result and then when the window appears, click on the More Details. You will then see a list of all the running processes on your computer. When you take a look within the CPU and Memory columns, take a check as to what programs are dominating the statistics. If you want to stop the activity of a program, simply click on it in the Task Manager window choose the End Task button found in the bottom right corner.

Another thing that can slow down activities in your personal computer is if it is infected with malware or other viruses. It is advisable that you have a good anti-virus software installed in your computer. When you do, do a system check first. But before you do a check on your system if it has any malware, it is important that you run a system scan to ensure that there are no erroneous pieces of software that are causing harm, which would then also result in slowing down your machine.

Even though you might not have an anti-virus software in your Windows 10 computer, you can rely on Windows Defender for this particular task. To get to Windows Defender, you will need to head to the Start Menu, then clicking on Settings, then Update. Afterwards, head on to Security, then Windows Defender. In here, you can do a Quick, Full, or Custom scan. It should be noted that when you do this, you won’t be needing to use your computer for a while since the process can take a good long while to complete.
