Windows 10: 3 things you no longer need


Windows 10: Όσο περισσότερο χρησιμοποιείτε τα Windows, τόσο πιο πιθανό είναι να έχετε κάποια συλλογή από κόλπα και tweaks for better performance. Below we will see 3 popular techniques that did not stand the test of time and should be withdrawn.

Windows has evolved, and many of the things that were once necessary to improve the performance and reliability of the Microsoft operating system are no longer needed.

Windows 10

Leave disk defragmentation alone

In the early years of computers, rebuilding a hard drive was one of the most important tasks in improving performance. It was something you should not forget to speed up your computer. The combination of slow storage (compared to modern technology), slow disk rotations (ditto) and dumb file systems required the regular rearrangement of the physical placement of the files on the disk, which had really noticeable results.

Over the years, two remarkable things have happened in the Windows ecosystem. System storage has become much faster, especially as SSDs are beginning to replace conventional hard drives and Microsoft engineers have greatly improved automatic data management for all types of drives.

In Windows 10, η μικρό-εφαρμογή Defrag.exe ονομάζεται πλέον Defragment and Optimize Drives. It runs automatically, as part of a scheduled task. On conventional hard drives, Defrag does what it always did, rearranging the data so that it can be recovered more efficiently. On SSDs where traditional defragging does not work, Defrag runs the Trim command, which clears storage blocks that are no longer used and can be released for new data.

(Older people will remember the MS-DOS Defrag utility, with its raw but exciting (then) Tetris appearance with the color blocks shifting to show the defragged files.)

To check the status of all available disks, type "defrag" in the search box, and then click Defragment and Optimize Drives.

The Defragment and Optimize Drives utility runs automatically. You have nothing to do anymore.

However you can run the Defrag.exe command whenever you want to check the status of each disk and confirm that everything is working properly.

Discard any registry cleaning applications

These applications once broke, but their popularity has declined in recent years.

The idea behind registry cleaning tools is simple. It starts with the belief that the Windows registry is a mess and based on this assumption the developers of each application are convinced that cleaning up any unnecessary or unused registry entries can speed up daily activities and prevent system crashes.

The idea that software can magically detect junk and unwanted registry entries is fascinatingly strange. The idea that you can improve performance by removing one or more registry entries left behind by an uninstall is definitely absurd.

I have never seen real data showing performance improvements. On the other hand, I have seen many examples of computers destroyed by an aggressive "cleanup" that deleted useful keys from the registry.

Forget telemetry or learn to live with it

Εφόσον επιλέγετε Windows 10 θα πρέπει να μάθετε να ζείτε με την τηλεμετρία. Ακούμε πολύ λιγότερο για την τηλεμετρία αυτές τις μέρες από ό, τι πριν από μερικά χρόνια, όταν πάρα πολλοί ανέφεραν την κατασκοπεία της Microsoft μέσω υπολογιστών με Windows 10.

Η Microsoft, όπως και οι περισσότερες εταιρείες λογισμικού στον διασυνδεδεμένο κόσμο μας, χρειάζεται μια σταθερή ροή δεδομένων για να καθορίσει πόσο καλά λειτουργούν τα προϊόντα της. Με περισσότερα από 900 εκατομμύρια υπολογιστές που τρέχουν με Windows 10, η χρήση αυτών των δεδομένων σε πραγματικό χρόνο είναι απαραίτητη για τον εντοπισμό προβλημάτων στο οικοσύστημα.

All information collected as part of the telemetry process is now fully documented, and a diagnostic data viewer lets you control all data sent to Microsoft telemetry servers.

Παράλληλα, η Microsoft απλοποίησε τις ρυθμίσεις για τα δεδομένα τηλεμετρίας. Η προεπιλεγμένη ρύθμιση για όλες τις εκδόσεις των Windows 10 είναι η “Full”, πράγμα που σημαίνει ότι τα δεδομένα που ανεβαίνουν συμπεριλαμβάνουν ανώνυμες λεπτομέρειες για την χρήση του λειτουργικού. Εάν ανησυχείτε για τυχόν αθέλητη διαρροή προσωπικών δεδομένων, μπορείτε να αλλάξετε την επιλογή σας στο “Basic” από τις Ρυθμίσεις – Απόρρητο – Ανατροφοδότηση & διάγνωση.

Αν ανησυχείτε πραγματικά για την προστασία της ιδιωτικής ζωής, επιλέξτε άλλο λειτουργικό. Τα Windows 10 χρειάζονται την τηλεμετρία.
