Over time, the computer slows down and some basic functions such as loading files and opening pages slow down. But that does not mean that it’s time to swap your PC yet, have you? Today I’m going to show you some simple tips to leave your PC faster! Look that:

Cleaning the Hard Drive

It seems somewhat difficult, but it is not. I’ll complicate it for you! Windows has a cleanup tool that deletes all unneeded files stored, such as error reports and temporary documents.

To delete all this, just go to “Disk Cleanup”. If your Windows is later than Windows 8, just use the search bar in the “Start” menu. Now, if it is earlier, go to “Start”, “Accessories” and then “System Tools” and look for the option.

Once the screen opens, you only have to select the files you want to delete and click “Clean System Files”.

Defragment and optimize drives

When we use the computer, the functions that make the system work are spreading through the hard disk, which is where all the data is stored. And if everything is scattered, the system can not find the information it needs.

To resolve this, go to “System Tools” and look for “Defragment and Optimize Drives”. Click “Analyze” and then “Optimize” or “Defragment.”

Uninstall programs

The computer can get faster if you uninstall the programs you no longer use and the programs that end up being downloaded together with others, often without you knowing. To do this, just look for the “Control Panel” and click on “Programs and Features”. Then just click on the program you want to delete and on “Uninstall”.

Clean files

Guys, it’s always good to clean your computer files. Delete the documents you no longer use, duplicate photos, and save the files you access the least to an External HD or USB flash drive. Also take the opportunity to empty the trash from your computer, see?

Another tip is to delete the shortcuts and files that are saved on the desktop. They make the computer take longer to boot!

Auto-execute

Do you know when you turn on the computer and several programs start to open? So this slows down the system, because it needs to process all the information in those programs.

One way to resolve this is by disabling automatic execution. To do this, open the Run app (just press Windows + R) and type “services.msc” (without quotation marks, see?). It will open a window with the list of programs that start automatically, manually and those that are Double-click the software that is running alone and change the startup type to “manual” or “disabled.”

Antivirus

Keeping your antivirus up to date is very important to avoid unwanted installation of viruses and suspicious programs, okay?
