June 11, 2018
Performance of the PC would impact the time taken for completion of any task. After all who would love to use a computer that has all the best apps installed but is slow to use! Here are a few things to ensure the best performance of your PC.
- Ensure that you have all the updates-
Software updates include security patches and bug fixes. These can fix all those issues that cause lags. So make sure that the operating system, as well as the windows apps, are all up to date.
- Explore all the features
When you are using a new feature look for tutorials and make sure that you are doing it right. For example, if you know how to setup two monitors in windows 10, you should also learn how to split screen. You should ensure that the hardware and software requirements are all met.
- Study the memory usage and delete unwanted apps
Having too many apps might make it easy to get things done. But some can simply be achieved with web-based applications. Periodically look for apps that you do not use anymore and uninstall them.
- Do not multitask all the time
Multitasking is good and with a good RAM speed, this can work pretty well. But having too many apps open at the same time can bring down the speed, even if you have the most powerful computer. To reduce the strain on your RAM.
- Turn your PC off regularly
Keeping your PC turned on for long hours can also reduce the speed and performance significantly. A simple restart can help in most cases.
Check for the apps that run automatically at startup and disable the unwanted ones. There are such small changes you could do to notice some big improvement in the performance.
