Get BEST Performance On Your PC... |WORK|

Your PC settings let you choose where files will be saved by default. You can save files on your PC or to OneDrive by default and sync files between the two locations. This lets you get to your files from any device that can connect to the internet, and it helps make sure your files are backed up in case your PC is ever damaged or lost. However, files must sync between your PC and OneDrive, and syncing can slow down your PC. You can pause OneDrive syncing temporarily and see if it helps improve your PC performance.

Get BEST Performance on Your PC...

The best way to handle viruses and malicious software is to try to prevent them by running antimalware and antivirus software and keeping it up to date. However, even if you take precautions, your PC can still become infected.

If you have Window 10 version 1709 or higher, you can use OneDrive Files On-Demand to choose which files you want to sync and always keep on your PC. This can help improve PC performance if you reduce the number of files that are synced to your PC. To see which version of Windows 10 your device is currently running, select the Start button, then select Settings > System > About.Open About settings

More than insufficient RAM or a struggling CPU, your graphics chip is almost always the bottleneck that causes stuttering or lackluster gameplay. To improve performance and increase FPS, push your graphics card beyond its default speed setting via overclocking.

All Nvidia drivers come with their own control panels that give you more power over your graphics settings and performance to optimize your PC for gaming. Go through the list of options and tweak them to increase FPS and find the right balance between performance and visual quality for your PC.To get to the Nvidia Control Panel, right-click on your desktop, select Nvidia Control Panel, and choose the Manage 3D Settings category on the left. These are some of the lesser-known but still important settings to tweak:

The AMD/ATI Control Center is another fantastic way to squeeze out more performance and increase the visual quality of your games. To fire it up, right-click on your desktop, select Radeon Settings, and head over to the Gaming Settings.From here, you can set individual graphic settings for games you have installed. But we suggest going with the Global Settings as our recommendations usually apply to all games.

Windows 10 has a feature that restarts the apps from your last session after a reboot, even before you sign in. Although this is a convenience feature that can speed up the process of quickly resuming where you left off, it can also impact system performance.

Old and poorly designed apps and apps that load unnecessary features can negatively affect the performance of your computer. Also, just because an app comes from a company you trust does not mean it's a good app.

Only install good apps if you want to keep your device healthy and snappy. Typically, you want to install apps available from the Microsoft Store because they've been reviewed for security and performance. If the app is not in the store, only download apps from trusted sources and confirm they work on Windows 10.

After you complete the steps, the tool will rearrange the files to make them accessible more quickly the next time they are needed, translating into noticeable performance improvement. The only caveat is that the process can take a long time, depending on the data stored on the drive. (If you have an older system, it is best to leave the process running overnight.)

On Windows 10, updates happen automatically, but depending on the update or the device's configuration, they don't always download and install as soon as they become available. If your computer is running slower than usual, it could be possible that an update is available to improve performance.

While apps from the Microsoft Store can update automatically, you have to install updates manually for many traditional desktop apps. If you have an app affecting performance, check your software support website for a newer update and the instructions to apply it.

Windows 10 includes different plans (Balanced, Power saver, and High performance) to optimize the power usage on your computer. If you want to boost the system performance, use the "High performance" option since it allows the device to use more power to operate faster.

After you complete the steps, Windows 10 will be reinstalled, removing previous configurations, settings, and apps to help you boost system performance. If you select the option to remove everything, remember to restore your files from a previous backup after the process.

Upgrading to a Solid-State Drive is perhaps one of the best ways to increase performance on older hardware. Usually, SSDs do not have moving parts like traditional hard drives, meaning data can be read and written much faster.

To get the maximum benefit in Windows 10, you need to turn indexing off completely. To do so, type services.msc in the Windows 10 search box and press Enter. The Services app appears. Scroll down to either Indexing Service or Windows Search in the list of services. Double-click it, and from the screen that appears, click Stop. Then reboot your machine. Your searches may be slightly slower, although you may not notice the difference. But you should get an overall performance boost.

The problem with a lot of articles that tell you how to speed up Windows is that they tell you to turn off some of the operating system's more fun features, such as visual animations. Most of our tips show you ways to speed up your Windows system without compromising its appearance and functionality. Most of the tips can be done for free, but some involve spending a little cash on software or hardware. For people with older, low-power machines who want a speed boost but don't care about extra goodies, a couple of the tips that you'll find toward the end of this list do boost system performance at the expense of visual bling.

There are a few third-party system cleanup utilities for Windows 10 that may speed up your computer, but this category of software isn't as popular as it once was. Most of these utilities do boost PC performance, but sometimes only by a modest amount. There are plenty of malicious downloads out there claiming to speed up your PC, so be sure to stick with a product that has been tested and vetted. Iolo System Mechanic is a good option, for example.

Both Windows 10 and 11 manage memory more efficiently than earlier versions of the OS, but more memory always can potentially speed up PC operations. If you still use a desktop tower, this article can show you how to add RAM. The bigger RAM makers' (Crucial, Kingston, Corsair) websites all offer product finders that show you which type of RAM your PC takes, and prices are pretty reasonable. You can get 8GB high-performance DDR4 RAM for less than $50.

If $50 or so is too much and your computer is old, has a hard drive rather than an SSD (see below), and has little RAM, you could try using ReadyBoost with a USB stick. It caches data on the portable storage device's storage to speed up memory access that would be slower with a spinning hard drive. Just go to the USB key's File Explorer entry, right-click to open Properties, and switch to the ReadyBoost tab to get going. For most up-to-date systems, this feature won't be available and would provide no performance boost.

For system speedup, it makes sense to replace your internal startup hard drive, and if you use a laptop, this may also be an option. But an external SSD with a USB 3.0 connection can also give you a speed boost in applications that use a lot of storage. For help in choosing which device to install, check out PCMag's list of the best SSDs.

You can run the built-in Windows Defender or a third-party app to do this, but you're best served by PCMag's lead security analyst Neil Rubenking's top pick among malware-cleanup programs. Don't forget to use ongoing anti-malware protection, too. Some of the AV products have a lighter footprint on system performance than others. See his complete roundup of the best antivirus software for full details. If you're reluctant to pay for antimalware software, try MalwareBytes Free, shown above.

If you want to save electricity, changing the power setting on your PC to high performance isn't ideal, but it could boost computing speed. Head to the Settings app's System > Power & Sleep option and then click the Additional Power Settings link. From here, click the dropdown arrow on the right side to Show Additional Plans and then choose High Performance.

In the dialog, use the radio button at the top labeled Adjust for best performance or select which eye-candy features you can live without from the long list of check boxes below these choices. If you choose the overall best-performance button, you'll lose all the visual effects. For example, you won't see the contents of a window while you're dragging it to move it, but rather just a rectangle representing the window's edges. Keeping the effects that you enjoy checked in the dialog is probably a better way to go. You can also get to this tool from the Settings app and searching for "maintenance" or "performance." 041b061a72
