What is suggested is tried and tested solutions on hundreds of Windows 8 / 8.1 / 10 enterprise and business computers, giving an immediate and obvious improvement in their response according to user findings after application.
They are three in number and their choice was made because their application is fast, without the use of third party applications and do not cause complications.
They are addressed to those who have older technology computers.
1) Disable effects. Right-click This Computer (either in the icon or in Windows Explorer) Propert Properties συστήματος Advanced System Settings νέο in the new Advanced tab → Perfomance → Settings.
In order not to lose the Windows experience, it is recommended to keep Show Thunmbnails instead of icons to see the photo / scan thumbnails and Smooth edges of screen fonts for clearer fonts in the texts .
2) Set up virtual memory. Defining a fixed size for the virtual memory file increases performance and has an effect only on systems with mechanical disks . In Windows 10 we trust the suggested size rounded to the hundreds upwards.
We select (Custom size) and write in the fields the same value that gives us as Recommended with Rounding.
Note 1: We do not apply any mathematical formula, in the example the suggested size was 1407MB, it was set to 1500MB and as a result it had the least disk usage. Where implemented as a solution with this reasoning, in different composition computers it had the same positive effect.
Note 2: If the computer has a design program such as Photoshop, AutoCad installed, we check after the change and restart the system, usually these applications have large virtual memory requirements.
If we have SSD / M2 we leave the Size Management from the system.
The steps are shown in the image.
3) Background applications (Windows 10). Disabling them frees up memory and processing power. It does not affect third-party applications such as antivirus and scheduled tasks such as backup software, but only the operating system components listed.
In System Settings we choose Privacy → Background apps → Allow applications to run in the background Let Let apps run in the background → Off
