Microsoft has introduced some enhancements to Windows 10 in the Creator’s Update. Tile folders on the start menu help you organize your app. There is also a feature to help maintain your storage (aka storage sense), a blue light reduction feature to help cut down on blue light when using the device at night. This can help you fell asleep. And an app throttling feature that helps Windows 10 to allocate system resources to the apps you’re now using and giving less priority to programs that run on the background. But with all these new enhancements in the Windows 10 Creator’s Update, you know how crappy your system becomes when you have multiple apps to use.
Naturally, performance is an-all-time issue. Because today’s most demanding apps and games (like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) push an actual PC to the limit, they just run too sluggishly. If you must run other programs, you usually use BOOTCAMP to boot directly into Windows, which allows your system to devote all its resources to the program at hand. Now it’s time to play PC sleuth.
Undo “Negative Effects”
No matter which version of the Windows you are using, rollback your PC and undo negative effects of the latest update. Here is how:
· Click Start | Settings
· Select Update & Security and then Windows Update
· Click Advanced Options and select Defer feature updates.
Start with Some Optimizations
Windows 10 Creator’s Update comes with a few minor enhancements. They all start when your computer starts. You should either get rid of them (if you want) or minimize these services.
· Hit Ctrl + Shift + Esc.
· Select Task Manager and Startup (here you can disable all unnecessary startups)
· Disable the unwanted ones. And click Services
· First check the Hide all Microsoft Service box and then uncheck all unnecessary services.
· Here you go! Now click Stop.
Not sure of what to disable? Don’t worry. We all are not. Use an automatic optimizer: Reginout System Utilities.
A 3-Second Boot Time Interval would Help.
How? Trust me, it works. It boosts your system performance. Here is how it works:
· Press Windows Key + R.
· Search (by typing) misconfig
· Click General | Selective Startup
· Check the Load System Services and Load Startup Items boxes.
· Select Apply.
· Now click the Boot tab.
· Set the Timeout to 3 seconds
· Click Apply
· Select Advanced options
· Choose Maximum Processor from the Number of Processors.
· Click OK and Reboot.
Try Changing Power Settings
It dramatically improves your PC’s startup performance. Follow these steps:
· Click Start → Power Options → Choose what power buttons do
· Now open Change Settings
· Click Shutdown Settings | Turn on Fast Startup
· Here you go! Save changes.
Keep Yourself Away from Outdated Drivers
Your Windows operates various components in your system by using software tools called drivers. An outdated driver can slow down your system – or even crash. Keep your drivers updated. Here’s how:
· Open Device Manager
· Right-click any device showing this sign “!” (Exclamation mark equals outdated driver).
· Select Update Driver Software
Your biggest weapon in your battle against the slow system is Disk Cleanup tool. It has several handy features in one place. Here you go:
· Hit Windows Key + E (it opens File Explorer)
· Right-click C Drive and go for Properties
· Hit General and then click Disk Cleanup
· Press Ctrl + A (select all) and click OK.
Configure the Paging File Size
Adjusting the size of the paging file is the cheapest way to improve the performance of a system. If your system runs slower than desired because you are using your RAM to the maximum, consider the maximum paging file size. Here’s how:
· Hit Start and click Control Panel.
· Click Performance → Adjust Appearance and Performance
· Click Advanced → Change (here you need to check the paging file size is NOT automatic)
· Now click Installed System Drive
· Click Custom Size
· Now go for the value your Windows recommends. You can set either initial or maximum size.
· 7. Click Set → OK → Apply → OK
Sometimes it becomes a mess. Keep checking Auto-Tuning status in Windows 10.
· Press Windows key. Type cmd.exe and hit enter. Now select Run as administrator.
· Again, type netsh interface tcp show global and hit Enter (now you’ll have an information list about your system)
· Search TCP Global Parameter (aka Receive Window Auto-Tuning Level).
· If it’s disabled, your system is automatically tuning it to monitor and optimize TCP connections.
Use System Recovery
When all-of-the-above steps do not work and your system is still running sluggishly, restore your system using the System Recovery options.
· Click Start → Settings → Update & Security → Recovery
· Did you recently upgrade your system? If yes, click Get Started in Go back to earlier build heading.
· Reset your system by clicking Get Started under Reset this PC.
