Services that you can disable to make Windows 10 run faster

Hello! Windows 10 brings with it great improvements and new features. However, not everything is always positive, and we also have to deal with some unnecessary ones that only slow down our computer. If you are a Windows user, you will know that there are a multitude of tricks, keyboard shortcuts, hidden functions and experiences possible in each installed tool. In addition, with updates, it appears that there are always some interesting ones added. However, not everything is always pretty. Occasionally, Windows updates or upgrades bring bugs. Or they include unnecessary functions. Worst of all, they often only slow down our computer. Consequently, we are going to see some Services that you can disable to make Windows 10 run faster.

Deactivate the print manager.

We all know that we send something to print from our computer less and less frequently. We usually replace it with our cell phone. However, the print spooler is still running in the background. And what’s worse, consuming processing power. The steps to deactivate it are basic. Let’s see how to do it.

  • Press the Windows key + R.
  • Type services.msc and press Enter.
  • Scroll down and double-click Print Spooler.
  • Change the Startup Type to Disabled.
  • Click Apply.
  • On the Service Status tab, click Stop.
  • Accept and close the window.

Turn off the fax services.

Here is, the vast majority of us neither use nor have a fax machine. This type of service, despite having been very useful, is now obsolete. If it is something that you are not going to need in the short term, you can deactivate it without problems following these steps (very similar to the previous ones):

  • Hold down the Windows key + R.
  • Type services.msc and press Enter.
  • Scroll down and double-click Fax (sorted alphabetically).
  • Change the Startup Type to Disabled.
  • Click Apply.
  • On the Service Status tab, click Stop.
  • Accept and close the window

Touch keyboard and writing pad services.

We came across this feature which is really not useful at all. The touch keyboard creates an interactive keyboard on the screen with which you can write. The handwriting panel allows you to write with a stylus and your normal and writing. It is true that it may be necessary for someone. However, not for the vast majority. So if you are one of these, know that they rob processing power from the things you actually use. How to disable the touch keyboard and the handwriting panel. It is a bit more complex, but following the steps to the letter is elementary:

  • Type Easy Access Keyboard in the search bar next to the Windows button.
  • Select Easy Access Keyboard Settings.
  • Slide the switch under Use device without physical keyboard to the left to disable it.
  • Alternatively, type Handwritten input in the search bar next to the Windows button.
  • Select Settings from the Handwriting input panel.
  • Uncheck the Write in the handwriting input panel with your fingertip box.

This is a similar case because normally the Bluetooth is connected from the mobile and not with the computer. It can be the use of lights, loudspeaker…etc. Disabling it will give it a big boost. Consequently, Here is how to deactivate Bluetooth:

  • Click on the Windows button.
  • Go to Settings.
  • Click on Devices.
  • In the Bluetooth and other devices section, swipe left on Bluetooth to disable it.

Terminate remote desktop services

Finally, we are dealing with one of the biggest threats to your system’s security. This function allows someone in another location to take control of your computer and manage it completely remotely. It exists to allow Microsoft technical support to help you if you have a problem. But just like they get in, almost anyone can get in. How to disable remote desktop services:

  • Type Remote Configuration in the search bar next to the Windows button.
  • Select Remote Desktop Configuration.
  • Toggle the switch to OFF.

These are just five services that, except for the printer, you almost certainly do not use. That is why it would be optimal to save you these processes and give your computer a little push to perform the necessary tasks in a more effective way. It is also true that this will not solve 100% of your slowness issues. They are just small tips that certainly improve, but do not fix something that may already depend on other factors. In short, we have seen some services that you can disable to make Windows 10 run faster.
