These tips can help you keeping the computer to work optimally.

  1. Turn off the unused applications when the Startup process.

Startup Process is an initial process of your computer before going to the Windows Operating System. If in this process there are many running applications, the system performance when the first signing automatically will be slow and heavy. Running application along with startup process is not recommended. To overcome, turning off the unused applications when the Startup process is very good idea. These are the ways:

  1. Click the Start button
  2. Select Run
  3. Type MSCONFIG
  4. ENTERmsconfig-on-windows8

There will be dialog box of System Configuration Utility. You will see some tabs on the dialog box and click on the Startup tab.  You will see all applications that run at the Startup process. Uncheck the column of startup item and press Apply. Usually, you will be asked by the system to restart the computer after the settings have already done.

  1. Delete Temporary Files on the computertemp

Temporary files in the system can affect the performance of your computer. They can make your computer runs slowly. Temporary files are several files that are only used temporary. They are not permanent. When the program finished, they will become redundant. The temporary file is created to store the temporary data when a file is being processed or used.

To delete the temporary files on system, you just need to follow these steps:

  1. Click start button
  2. Select Run
  3. Type temp
  4. ENTER

There will be all temporary files created by the system. Delete the file regularly to reduce the contained space in the hard disk. It can make your computer performance optimized. It is better for you to remove temporary files immediately after ending the program. But, it does not always occur.

  1. Uninstall unused applicationuninstall

Installing too many applications on the computer can cause your computer run slowly. Moreover, the specifications of your computer are not appropriate with the applications that you install.

To uninstall the applications, you can follow the steps:

  1. Click button
  2. Select Control Panel
  3. Double Click Add or Remove Programs. You will see all applications that you have installed on your computer.
  4. Select the application that you want to remove and then uninstall.

    The MSCONFIG start up tab is no longer available in Windows 10 ….. it’s there but it redirects your attention to task manager where one can enable or disable startup programs. Seems to me you just blew the dust off an old Windows 7 article and replaced 7 with 10 where needed.
