1. Watch well what programs start

One of the things that slows down a PC the most are startup programs . Yes, they are those applications that start to come out of nowhere in the lower right when Windows is loaded, from Spotify to Skype through dozens of them. Each of these programs consumes many PC resources, which ends up ballasting it in the long run.

To configure apps that start from scratch it is necessary to enter the Task Manager, so press the magic combination Control + Alt + Delete . When the screen comes out, the rest is just click on " More details " and then at the top where "Start" appears.

As a curiosity, the "Status" column refers to whether the app starts booting or not (enabled / disabled). However, the important one is the one on the right, the so-called "Start Impact". This reflects how much Windows suffers when booting from scratch, if it is "low", "medium", "high" or "none". Remove all you want, but especially those that are "high" and "medium."

2. Delete programs

We talk about managing programs that start from scratch, but what if we delete them better ? In the PC we accumulate dozens of applications that remain there forever, consuming equipment resources and without taking it into account.

Go to "Settings" -> "Applications" and remove all the tools that the equipment has and you no longer use it regularly.

3. Free hard disk space

Another one of those tips that is usually overlooked: that of freeing space on hard disk. Unlike deleting programs, there are many files that remain stored on the PC and end up being unusable, such as temporary or those Windows updates that are no longer needed.

The process is simple: type " cleanmgr " (without quotes) in the search engine and right click on the application of "Space Liberator" -> "Run as administrator". The application will start alone and tell you how much space it can free up. Very simple

4. Remove transparencies

This is simple. Windows 10 has some transparency effects that consume some resources. To remove them you just have to enter "Settings" -> "Personalization" . Once here, in the left column click on "Colors" and uncheck " Transparency effects ".

5. Say goodbye to notifications

The last tip is like with smartphones: remove notifications so that everything works a little better . Simply enter "Settings" -> "System" -> "Notifications and actions".

Here you can disable many options, so it's up to you. As a curiosity, we have all unchecked.
