How to Optimize the Performance of Your Computer

How to Optimize the Performance of Your Computer

If your computer isn’t fast as it used to be when it was relatively new, it could be a pretty frustrating experience for you. In time, the speed and performance of the computers go down. However, if your computer is unusually slow, then you can use some tips to optimize the performance.

Kill all the unnecessary programs running in the background. To find out which programs are not needed to run the normal operations of the computer, you can right-click on the taskbar and click on ‘Start Task Manager.’ When the Task Manager Window opens, click on the ‘Processes’ tab. There are some services which are required by the Windows. However, there may be few which you may not need at all. Click on the particular service you don’t need and then click on the ‘End Process’ button.

Do not open too many windows at the same time unless you really need to. When there are too many windows open, your computer requires more RAM and processor usage. Thus, the speed of the computer decreases. Keep only those windows open that you really need.

Defragment your hard disk drive from time to time. When you add or remove files from the hard drive, the sectors of the drive get fragmented. Due to this, the computer takes more time to read from the hard disk. This in turn impairs the performance.

Also, make sure that your Temporary Folder is clear all the time. When there are lots of temporary files, the performance of your computer is significantly affected.
