The up-to-date version of the Creators Update is almost there and that’s the reason we’re going to talk about three main things you should do before this update is released.
Startup limitation Up Applications
One of the reasons why some computers will take longer to start is because there are many applications in startup. You should know that you will not be able to use most of these applications most of your days. We recommend disabling unnecessary startup applications as they tend to slow down your computer. If you disable an application from the start when loading Windows, you will need to go to Task Manager> Startup, right-click the application and select “Disable.”
Defragment your hard drive
There are a lot of users who ignore the defragmentation process, which is really bad for a hard drive. Hard drives have rotating parts where data is stored and when it builds data, the hard drive is overloaded. This means that you start to notice that the computer starts up very slow to respond when you try to open an application or when you try to access certain files on your hard disk.
Windows 10, like the previous version of the operating system, comes with a defragmentation application that allows you to rearrange the data on your computer’s hard drive. However, keep in mind that if you install a SSD in your computer, defragmentation process is automatic, which means that you do not need to defragment your SSD.
Install more RAM
One of the easiest ways to increase your computer is to add a few GB of RAM. Many think they will boost by changing the processor to their computer, which is almost true, but if you notice a powerful processor and not a lot of RAM, your computer will be very slow. In other words, it does not matter if you are an i5 or i7 processor, if you only have 2 GB of RAM.
