Hello! We live in a world that is globalized and highly governed by technology. Indeed, the use of time is a priority so any minute gained is essential. Despite the fact that Windows 10 is an increasingly improved system, it is also true that sometimes it takes some time to boot up. Consequently, users can make some changes to improve the computer’s startup. So let’s see how to make Windows 10 boot faster.
How to activate Fast Startup in Windows 10.
Surely the first step to take is to enable this option in the system. In fact, it is most likely that this function is enabled by default. However, if it is not, then follow these steps:
- Press the Win+Q combination and in the search box, type Control to enter the Control Panel.
- Once there, enter System and Security
- Now, within the Power Options please select Change what the power buttons do.
- Then check the box for Turn on fast startup.
Disable applications that start on Windows startup.
Another way to improve boot speed is to disable applications that start with the boot of Windows 10. This way resources are focused on just booting the operating system. To do this you need to enter the Task Manager by pressing the combination Ctrl+Shift+Esc. Once there, select the Startup tab. Next, you can see the processes that are started with the system, as well as the impact they have on the startup. Consequently, press the right mouse button and disable it.
Please note that there are Windows-specific processes that should not be disabled as they can generate instability. These processes are those related to sound or mouse drivers. Another way to disable applications from booting is to enter the Windows 10 settings. With that intention, please press the Win+I combination and then enter the Apps.
Then select the Startup menu and in the right column disable the startup service.
Disable visual effects in Windows 10
Finally, we have a little trick to optimize operating system performance. Windows 10 has by default some special effects that improve aesthetics. However, these effects consume valuable resources that can damage the performance of Windows. Therefore, it is possible to partially or totally disable these effects according to your needs. This trick will work especially for those users of modest equipment. So without further delay, let’s see how to do it. First press the Win+R combination and execute the command sysdm.cpl
Immediately a window will be displayed, please select the Advanced tab and then click on Performance Settings
The window with the visual effects will then be displayed. There are also options for better performance or better visual appearance. You can also let Windows select the best settings for your computer. Finally, you can customize the selection of effects. In particular, I use the settings that I will show you next. However, it is up to each user to select and modify the options.
Ultimately we have seen how to make Windows 10 boot faster. With these simple tricks, it is possible to improve the performance and stability of the system. All right, that’s it for now.
