There are several common desires among computer users. One of the most frequent in any such circle has to be the desire for a machine that runs faster. We all wish our programs would load more quickly. Did you know there are actually several hacks you can consider to accomplish this?
At Letusrepair, we’re proud to offer PC and laptop repair services. We know speed is a huge variable for many of our clients. Here are some general tips on how to make your computer run faster during regular operations.
Carry Out System Updates
Those regular updates have an important purpose when it comes to speed. They’re intended by programmers to ensure your device remains safe and runs the fastest possible speeds at all times.
You might be surprised how many computers begin slowing down primarily because these updates were not carried out. If you’re not prompted by your device to do so, look for them in the settings menu or search online.
These updates cover several specific areas, from removing outdated features and enhancing your app security to fixing bugs. The more you update your device, the faster it will run.
Disable Auto-launching Programs
Some programs will start automatically when your computer starts up. Again, this feature was designed with convenience in mind, so the user doesn’t have to start the program manually. But if you have too many programs starting when you open your computer, it will occupy all your resources, and you won’t be able to get anything done.
Think carefully about which programs you want to have at startup, and disable everything that isn’t necessary or beneficial.
Manage Your Storage and Memory
Another key reason is owner has filled the storage space far beyond their device’s maximum capacity. It can be tough to resist this temptation since it’s simple enough to store more media, documents and other files for future use. But you’re actually doing your machine a disservice by giving it too much work to do at once.
To keep your storage in check, be sure to remove any files that you no longer need. If you take photos with your mobile device or download material that doesn’t get watched much, delete after its initial use. So your computer doesn’t have to sort through all this information every time it runs a system scan.
Free up some memory by uninstalling apps you don’t use regularly. Don’t wait until your device starts running slowly. Take the time to go through and get rid of anything you’ll never launch again.
Use an External Storage Drive
You can’t be expected to delete everything on your device if you need to keep a lot of files on hand at all times. These external drives offload some of the material that’s bogging down your computer without having to sacrifice it entirely. This also has the benefit of protecting some of your information from any viruses that may harm your device’s internal storage.
While their actual locations may vary, the format for sending files is simple and mostly standardized across the board. All you have to do is drag and drop the files in question into the appropriate folder on your device. It’ll immediately be sent to another location where you can retrieve them later.
Uninstall Unnecessary Programs
Installed programs on your computer can also bog your system down. Browse through all your current programs and uninstall anything that you haven’t used in the past six months or so. Chances are, there will be at least a few programs you don’t even remember installing.
Upgrade Your RAM
Much of your computer’s performance depends on its RAM, or random access memory. This allows your computer to perform multiple operations simultaneously, holding information in a kind of temporary memory. The more RAM you have, the more processes you’ll be able to perform simultaneously. Upgrading from 2 GB to 4 GB or 8 GB could substantially improve the performance of almost any computer, even one that’s several years old.
Hopefully, these strategies can collectively boost your computer’s performance, and extend its lifespan by at least several months.
