1. Uninstall unnecessary software:

Your computer comes preloaded with several applications that many people won’t use but that can eat up system resources. You can usually identify these when you see a pop-up prompting you to update a program you’ve never used before. Remove them from your computer and free up disk space

2. Limit the programs at the startup:

Along the same lines, you can also determine which applications run when your PC boots up. Windows 10 has an updated Task Manager that makes it easier to determine what you want running in the background and what you can start on your own.

3. Add more RAM to your PC:

In terms of memory usage, Windows 10 & 11 uses less RAM than previous versions, but increasing RAM memory has been a tried-and-true way to speed up devices for years. If you have a convertible or detachable laptop, you’ll likely need to settle for what came in the box. Some business and gaming la...

4. Check for spyware and viruses:

It’s almost impossible not to pick up a virus at some point while browsing the web, but the new Windows Defender software has made it easier than ever to find malware that may be causing major issues on your PC. Third-party programs are also easy to install and can be just as effective in removin...

5. Use Disk Cleanup and defragmentation:

Every computer has many files and programs on its hard drive/ SSD that haven’t been used in a while or are unnecessary. Disk Cleanup allows you to find which applications and files can be deleted from your computer, freeing up drive space for the programs you will use. You should also schedule di...

6. Consider a startup SSD:

When you want better performance, a startup solid-state drive (SSD) can go a long way toward taking some of the pressure off the processor when your computer boots up.If you tend to run many applications at one time or use photo and video editing software, then a startup drive can go a long way t...

7. Take a look at your web browser:

Minor adjustments can often make a difference with the speed of your PC. Something as simple as which browser you use can slow down or speed up the rate at which web pages, videos, and images load. If you have been using a certain browser and notice that there is a lag time, consider an alternati...

8. Restart Your Computer:

Restarting your computer is probably the easiest fix for almost any PC problem, including general system slowdowns. When you restart your computer, you stop all running software, tasks, processes, and open pieces of data that are draining your computer’s processing power. When you boot back up, y...

9. Empty Your Recycle Bin:

Most people delete files, but these files get moved to the Recycle Bin and are then forgotten about. It’s important to regularly empty the Recycle Bin to fully remove deleted files from your system. When you permanently remove your files from your PC, they’re gone forever — unless you’ve backed t...

10. Reinstall Windows:

If your computer is severely slowed down, consider starting again with a fresh version of Windows. You can do this from home and you won’t need to pay for a new version of Windows if you already have Windows installed and activated. But installation can take up to a few hours, and you will need t...

11. Overclock Your CPU:

Overclocking essentially means forcing your CPU components to run faster than they were designed to. This method can be a bit dangerous, as overclocking can cause processors to overheat and become damaged. It may not even be possible to overclock your CPU if the motherboard is lo...

12. Upgrade Your Computer’s Hardware:

Therefore, consider upgrading some of your computer’s components to speed up your system. Desktop PCs will usually be easier to upgrade than laptops but always check with your manufacturer first.

You have a few options here, depending on what’s causing your computer’s slowdown:

  • U...

13. Conclusion (Maintaining Good PC Performance):

Regardless of what’s causing your PC to slow down over time, there are a few best practices to keep in mind for better day-to-day performance such as:

  • Always close apps and software you’re not using.
  • Move large files to an external storage drive and/or ...

However, all computers and their components degrade and have to be replaced or upgraded over time. But with proper care, you can delay that and give your computer a long, happy life
