Your team’s productivity hinges on efficient computer performance, but sluggish devices can hinder their work, impacting your business’s overall efficiency and even your personal workflow. Before splurging on costly replacements, explore several strategies to boost performance on both Windows 10 and 11.

Here’s a glimpse:

  1. Restart Your Computer: A simple shutdown and restart can often work wonders by clearing background processes, applications, and memory data, especially if your computer has been running for an extended period.
  2. Manage Startup Apps: Streamline your computer’s startup process by disabling unnecessary apps that automatically launch with Windows 11. Navigate to Settings > Apps > Startup, and toggle off any apps with high “Startup impact.”
  3. Disable Restartable Apps: Improve performance by deactivating the feature in Windows 11 that saves and restarts certain applications upon reboot. Access Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options, and toggle off “Automatically save my restartable apps and restart them when I sign back in.”
  4. Uninstall Unnecessary Apps: Declutter your system and optimize performance by uninstalling unused or redundant applications through Settings > Apps > Installed apps.

Additionally, exercise caution when installing new software, as poorly designed or outdated applications can significantly degrade performance. Stick to reputable apps from trusted sources, preferably those available in the Microsoft Store, and conduct thorough online research before installation.

Consider leveraging our team’s expertise to meticulously assess your computers and network for hidden issues, saving you time and ensuring optimal performance. Reach out to us for comprehensive assistance tailored to your business needs.
