Windows 10 is a great operating system, but it’s not perfect. There are times when your computer runs slow due to some issues. If you’re having problems with your PC, here are some tips to fix them quickly.
Uninstall Programs You Don’t Need
If you have programs installed on your computer that you don’t use often, they could be slowing down your machine.
Clean Up Your Registry
The registry is where all of your software settings are stored. When your computer slows down, it may be because something in the registry is causing errors. Then press Enter.
Your hardware devices need drivers to work properly. If you haven’t updated your drivers lately, it might be time to do so. Go to Device Manager and update any outdated drivers.
Check For Malware
Malware is short for malicious software. It’s designed to steal information or damage your computer. If you suspect malware on your computer, download anti-malware software from Microsoft.
Optimize Your Hard Drive
Hard drives store data and programs on magnetic disks. Over time, hard drive space gets filled up with files and folders. To free up space, delete old files and empty the Recycle Bin.
When you save a file, it doesn’t immediately appear on your computer. Instead, it goes into temporary storage until it’s ready to be accessed. As you open and close files, your hard drive stores them temporarily. When you defragment your hard drive, it reorganizes the files on your disk to make room for future files.
