Why is my Computer slow?

Today I will be describing best practices when offering necessary maintenance to Windows 10 operating system.

Have you noticed that over time, the computer seems to slow down, lags, just does not run as it did when you first purchased it?

The first natural thought may be that there is something wrong, A typical assumption could be that your computer is wearing out, what have I done to the computer to cause it to slow down?

I will be talking in this blog about ‘secrets’ that the average user is unaware of when it comes to caring for the awfully expensive computer used for most, daily.

The good news is that there is ‘Nothing’ wrong with your computer.

Just as with other mechanical things in your life the Computer requires regular maintenance to receives ‘like new’ performance.

3 Things that can easily be done to provide necessary relief to working computer.

1. Open the tool by search. Press Windows+F, type cleanmgr in the Start Menu's search box and click cleanmgr in the results. Way 2: Open Disk Cleanup via Run. Use Windows+R to open the Run dialog, enter cleanmgr in the blank box and choose OK.

2. Find the search box (bottom left side of windows) type in this command: %Temp% click enter. This command brings you to a folder that stores all temporary files in which Windows stores on the operating system.

i) These files are unnecessary to the working of windows and should be removed as a routine maintenance.

ii) These files are stored to speed up revisiting of internet pages.

iii) This is important to have the folder, but when it is overloaded it then slows the overall computer performance.

b) When seeing the files in this folder %TEMP% The user will then select the key CTRL A to select all files in this folder and then click on the delete button. This results in all of the files in the TEMP folder being deleted.

3. Going back to the search box type in this search word TEMP.

1. This will take you to ‘another’ temp folder that can equally be deleted, described in last direction for the %TEMP% The difference is the title of the folder. (Make note of the % signs listed.

After following these suggestions, many of the typical issues that inevitably occur with computer issues will be repaired.

This is NOT the silver bullet for all computer problems that are possible with your machine. These are the first things the IT guy will do prior to diagnosing the client’s computer.
