Hello everyone, welcome to a new blog in which I tell you about how to make your windows 10 faster. When you bought a new Laptop or computer you install operating systems like Windows10 etc by downloading windows 10 and making the bootable USB or by using CD or DVD-ROM.

After a passive time, you have noticed your PC takes time to start and it performs every action slow as it performed in the beginning. Today I tell you some simple and free tips that are enough to make your windows and PC faster. And the best thing is that everyone can perform these steps even they don’t know much about computers.

Startup Programs are those programs that automatically start when you start your PC. When a program is installed in windows, it may add some part of it in the startup program and your boot-up process becomes slow after installing many software. And these programs slow your system performance because these software’s are running permanently in the background. Now we disable some of these programs which you use rarely. So, go into the search menu and type Task Manager or simply press ctrl+shift+escape. Just go to the program that is not used on daily basis, find them and apply this, right-click on these programs and disable them. It will really boost your boot process.

Defragment and Optimization is another step that helps you to make your windows 10 faster. Go to the start menu and search defragment and optimize and you will see the desired result so click on it to open. Here you can analyze that if optimization needed or not. Then go to the drive and click optimize to optimize your drive. You can also set optimization of the drive automatically. In setting, you can adjust the frequency of automatic optimization of drives to weekly, daily, etc. If you installed a window on SSD then there is no need for optimization but if you are using a hard disk then this step is helpful.
