I am quite sure that there was an instance in your life that you were a bit **** with your computer’s performance.  If you’re one of those users who are currently experiencing slow computer response time, this might be helpful for you. In this article, I’ll be sharing some tips on how you could tweak your computer to make it a bit faster.

Uninstall unneeded programs – Most computer users don’t really care much about uninstalling programs that are really not needed anymore. If you want to clean your computer, uninstalling some programs could be a good start for you. This could free some storage space on your computer. It might also help speed up your computer if the said programs that you’ll be uninstalling are currently on the startup list.

Removing unnecessary startup programs – If you don’t want to remove certain programs from your computer, removing it from launching at startup could also help. When your computer starts up, it will load programs included on the startup list and some of them might not be necessary. If you could remove some of them, it might do the trick. To do this, you could go to run > type “msconfig” then select the startup tab. In this tab, you’ll be seeing all the programs that automatically start when you enter windows. If there are some programs that are really not needed, just uncheck it. Please do take note that if you’re not so familiar with the program, ask someone who does or search the internet just to be sure that you don’t uncheck startup programs that are important.

Adjusting visual effects – This tweak is one of the most effective ways on how to speed up your response time. All you need to do is to adjust your visual effects for it to perform better. To do this, you just need to right click my computer> Advanced system settings> Performance Settings then select “Adjust for best performance”. This way, you’ll be experiencing better response time by sacrificing your computer’s animation.

Disk Defragment – Using disk defragment on your drives could also help improve system performance. It might take a little while to complete but it would be better for your computer. To do this, you could just search “Disk Defragment” from the search box. If it couldn’t start disk defragmentation instantly, it will automatically run on your next restart.

Following the said tips could really help regardless of what kind of processor your computer is using but do make sure that you just follow the instructions and don’t just click anything that you’re not familiar with.
