Is your computer driving you crazy? Don’t hammer it into pieces just yet. If your PC is getting too slow for you, here are some ways to improve its performance. There are other methods of course, but try these for now:
Tweak Appearance Settings
By default, your computer comes with visual effects to keep your machine appealing. Some of these visual effects are unnecessary. For example, do you really need shadows under menus, icons, or your mouse pointer? You can live without those features! Unless you have a powerful machine, don’t bother with those extra visual effects.
Make Windows Explorer Start Faster
There are ways to tweak Windows Explorer so that it loads faster. The reason it’s a little slow is because by default, Windows Explorer automatically searches for network drives, network files and folders, and other devices in your network. You can turn off this feature and gain some speed.
Remove Unused Device Drivers
When you install a device in your computer, drivers for that device are also installed with it so that it will work in your PC. When your PC boots, it loads those drivers — making your computer ready for those devices. If you no longer use certain devices in your computer, then what’s the point of keeping the device drivers in there? They use valuable resources that could be allocated elsewhere. What a waste! The solution? Remove the unwanted device drivers from your PC.
Delete Unnecessary Software
Did you install software in your PC that you no longer use? Maybe you installed that software 5 years ago, and have not used it since. Perhaps there are several softwares on your computer that you don’t use anymore. They’re taking up space for nothing! Uninstalling those programs will free up your hard disk space and speed up your computer.
There you go! You’ve just gained some speed for your computer machine! It may not be the fastest in the world, but it’s not as slow as how it used to, that’s for sure!
