Your PC Optimization Guide

At Uptech Limited, we recognize the crucial role technology plays in driving business efficiency and success. Slow and sluggish computers not only frustrate your team but also impact your company’s overall performance. Before jumping to the conclusion that you need to replace your PCs, consider optimizing their performance with these comprehensive tips provided by our expert team.

Restart Your Computer:

One of the simplest yet most effective ways to improve computer performance is by restarting it. This basic action clears out temporary files, resets system processes, and can resolve common performance issues that accumulate over time.

Manage Start-up Apps:

Many applications are configured to launch automatically when you start your computer, slowing down the boot-up process. To regain speed, review and disable unnecessary start-up apps using the following steps:

  • Open Settings
  • Click on Apps
  • Select the Start-up page
  • Sort apps by their “Start-up impact”
  • Disable toggles for unnecessary apps
  • Restart your computer for changes to take effect

Disable Restartable Apps:

Windows 10 and 11 have a feature that automatically saves and restarts certain applications upon reboot. While this feature can be convenient, it can also impact performance. To disable restartable apps:

  • Open Settings
  • Click on Accounts
  • Navigate to the Sign-in options page
  • Disable the “Automatically save my restartable apps and restart them when I sign back in” toggle switch

Uninstall Unnecessary Apps:

Unused or unnecessary applications take up valuable disk space and can slow down your system. Remove them using the following steps:

  • Open Settings
  • Click on Apps
  • Select the Installed apps page
  • Choose the app you want to uninstall and click the Uninstall option
  • Follow on-screen instructions if necessary

Exercise Caution with Software Installation:

Be selective about the software you install on your computer. Poorly designed or outdated applications can negatively impact performance. Stick to reputable apps, preferably those available in the Microsoft Store, which undergo thorough reviews for security and performance.
