It happens that your computer gets slow doing a job or just seeing a movie? You want to know how to boost your pc ?

Without going through third-party software, it is possible tooptimize the performance of your PC. Windows includes all the necessary tools.

In this article, I will present 4 tips that I personally use to boost my computer Windows.

Disable unnecessary services

Among all the programs and processes that launch at startup, some are not necessarily useful and slow down the startup of the PC. Windows automatically launches a collection of services that are not always useful and resource-intensive at startup. It's easy to stop them. You simply need to follow the steps below:

  • In the start menu search box, type Services. Click on Services, with the gear as the logo, or Show local services.
  • Some services are not necessarily useful to you (for example those which manage PC fleets, useless if your PC is not connected to a company or home network).
    In this case, right click on it then properties. Choose Disabled to the right of Startup type and confirm with OK.services-windows- interface
  • Each service is configured to a Startup Type. Automatic means that the service starts when the Windows. Manual states that the service is not loaded at startup, but it will be launched as needed. Finally, a service can be completely disabled.
  • You must be careful with these manipulations, otherwise you will deactivate essential services. If you're not sure what you're doing, do an internet search for the service you're wondering about before deciding whether to disable it or not.

Clean up in MSconfig

Often, when users install or download a program, it runs automatically during the startup procedure of Windows which reduces the speed of your machine.

If you are bothered by the automatic launch of hundreds of software programs when you start Windows, the solution is very simple:

  • Click on Start and enter the command msconfig and validate by entry,


  • In the tab Start-up, you would find a list of all the programs that are running at startup. Uncheck the boxes in front of the software you want to disable.

And here is the problem of starting several software is solved.

Free up RAM

A tip that I use regularly is to stop greedy processes to optimize the RAM of my machine.
Whether you are sure Windows 11 or later, press Ctrl + shift + esc to open the task manager. Applications are separated from processes.
Click on process to display the programs which occupy a lot of RAM.
To stop a process and free the corresponding resources, right click on it and then left click on End task.
It's important to know what you're doing, some of which are essential to the operation of the PC. If you are unsure whether a process is useful, type its name into a search engine to see what it does.
Finally, in the tab Performance, you can view the percentage of RAM used.

Following the operations you have just carried out, you should observe a drop in this value.

Turn off visual effects on Windows

The visuals are nice, admittedly, but they can slow down aging setups. deactivating them will then give your machine a facelift.

To access the visual effects, go to the menu search field Start, type " Adjust visual effects »And click on« Adjust the appearance and performance of Windows"

You can check “ Adjust for the best performance » (which deactivates all effects), or “ Custom settings » to uncheck only the effects of your choice.

Don't forget to Apply the changes before confirming with OK.
