Disable programs running on startup

Press Ctrl-Shift-Esc, right-click the bottom-right corner of your screen, select Task Manager, or type Task Manager in the Windows 10 search box, and then click Enter. Click ‘More Details’ at the bottom of your screen if the Task Manager launches as a compact app with no tabs. In all of its full-tabbed glory, the Task Manager will then appear. There’s plenty you can do with it, but we’re only going to focus on killing unneeded start-up programs.

Press the tab for Startup. The list of services and programs that are launched when you start Windows will be displayed. The name of each program as well as its publisher is included in the list, whether it is enabled to run on startup and its “Startup impact,” which is how much Windows 10 slows down when the system starts up.

To stop the launch of a program or service at startup, right-click it and select “Disable.” This does not completely disable the program; it only prohibits it from launching at startup; after launch, you can always run the program. “Also, if you decide later that you want it to be launched at startup, you can just go back to this Task Manager area, right-click the application and select “Enable”.

Modify the power settings

You’re slowing down your PC if you’re using Windows 10’s Power Saver plan. The scheme decreases the efficiency of your PC in order to conserve resources. (Typically, even laptop PCs have a “Power saver” plan.) It can give you an immediate performance boost by adjusting your power plan from “Power saver” to “High performance” or “Balanced”.

Launch the Control Panel software to do this, then pick Hardware and Sound > Power Options. You will usually see two options: “Balanced (recommended)” and “Power saver.” (You can also see other plans here based on the make and model, even those marketed by the manufacturer.) To see the “High performance” configuration, press the “Show additional plans” arrow down.

To give your PC a speed boost, change the power settings in the Control Panel (Click image to enlarge it.)

“Simply choose the one you want to change your power setting, then exit the Control Panel. “High performance” gives you the most oomph, but uses the most power; “Balanced” provides a fine balance between power use and improved performance, and “Power saver” does all it can to give you as much battery life as possible. Desktop users have no need to choose “Power saver,”.

Shut off tips and tricks for Windows

Windows keeps an eye on what you’re doing as you use your Windows 10 PC and offers tips on things you will want to do with the operating system. In my observation, these “tips” have rarely, if ever, been found helpful.

Windows will also make your PC work more extremely slowly by seeing what you do and providing suggestions. So if you want to improve performance, ask Windows to stop giving you suggestions. To do just that, click the Start button, and choose the Settings icon and then go to System > Notifications & actions. Scroll down to the Messages section and uncheck the box marked “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows.”

Turning off Windows’ recommendations for you should actually help run better (and give you back a measure of privacy).

Try just a few of these tricks, and you’ll find you have a faster Windows 10 PC and one that’s less likely to have any issues with reliability.
