Here are some easy steps for you how to really speed up your computer if you are using Windows 10!
Before you make any changes you should always create a restore point so that – IF for any reason one of the following modifications is not working out for you – you can always easily undo all steps and go back to where we started.
CREATE A RESTORE POINT
– Click on your WINDOWS start button (lower left corner), and type “Create a restore point” in search
– a SYSTEM PROPERTIES window will open up and you should directly have the SYSTEM PROTECTION tab open
– Create a restore point now by clicking the last button (“Create”)
– Type a description to help you identify the restore point later. Current date and time are added automatically.
– now you can undo system changes by reverting your computer to a previous restore point.
SPEED UP YOUR COMPUTER
1. Turn off UAC
User Account Control, or just UAC is a part of the Windows security system which prevents apps from making unwanted changes on your PC. When some software tries to change system-related
parts of the Registry or the file system, Windows 10 shows an UAC confirmation dialog, where the user should confirm if he really wants to make those changes. Thus, UAC provides a
special security environment for your user account with limited access rights and can elevate a particular process to full access rights when necessary. However, many users are not happy
to see these UAC prompts and prefer to use Windows 10 with the classic security model, i.e. by creating limited and administrator accounts like in Windows XP and earlier. If you are one
of those users, here is how to disable UAC and get rid of its popups in Windows 10.
– Type in your start “UAC” and set it to “Never notify”
2. Speed Up Start Up
– Type in your start “MSCONFIG” , open up the BOOT tab and set timeout to “3 SEC”
– click on ADVANCED and set NUMBER OF PROCESSORS to MAX.
