Is your Windows computer constantly lagging or crashing frequently? Or is it simply that the computer keeps restarting and the battery drains quickly after a few hours of use? If so, your computer is probably wasting resources on unproductive processes.

In this article, we'll explore the different ways you unwittingly burden your computer and show you how to make it better. As follows.

1.Do not turn off background applications and processes

Applications and processes that will continue to run in the background, even if you close them or don't use them, are collectively known as background apps. Since they are always active, of course they will take up a lot of resources.

The reason these apps run in the background is to help you quickly and easily access them when you need them. However, they invade the resources of RAM, CPU and hard drive, resulting in your computer running sluggishly and inefficiently. Therefore, turning off applications running in the background will help you make the most of your device's resources to run heavy software and games that you love.

To do that, follow these steps:

Step 1: Open Settings and access Privacy

Step 2: Find Background apps and switch to OFF in applications that you feel it is not necessary for background running.

Besides turning off background applications, you should also disable background processes to reduce the load on Windows as follows.

Step 1: Open Task Manager and click on the Startup tab

Step 2: Right-click the process to be disabled and select “Disable”.

2.Always enable third-party services

If you use Windows, you can't help but use third-party software and applications. However, as soon as they are installed and run for the first time, most of the software will start to start some third-party background services, and they will continue to run even though they are running in the background. you have closed the software, the application again.

This can be a service that checks for updates or a maintenance service that fixes specific programs on a regular basis. Sometimes you don't even know they exist on the system.

Therefore, disabling third-party background services also reduces the load on Windows after each startup. Specifically how to turn off as follows.

Step 1: Enter the keyword “msconfig” into RUN and press the ENTER key.


Bước 2: Hộp thoại System Configuration hiện ra, bạn hãy nhấn vào tab Services và đánh dấu vào lựa chọn “Hide all Microsoft services”.

Step 3: Now your job is to simply tick the third-party background services or click “Disable all” to turn them off.

3. Run third-party antivirus software alongside Microsoft Defender's Firewall

Microsoft Defender is a pre-installed software application of the Windows operating system that prevents threats and viruses from entering the system.

Since Microsoft Defender already provides the best protection for your system, you do not need to install additional antivirus software. This means you don't need to run two processes to complete the same task.

Nowadays, there are quite a few antivirus programs that are set to run continuously and require a lot of system resources to handle tasks, sometimes to keep up with scanning when activated. Therefore, unless you have turned off Microsoft Defender or just use an anti-virus software to protect from threats.

Therefore, it is not necessary to run third-party antivirus software in parallel with Microsoft Defender's Firewall. Disabling third-party antivirus software will significantly reduce resource consumption, allowing other Windows processes to run more smoothly.

4.Customize the look and feel of Windows and enable sound enhancements

There's nothing wrong with customizing Windows to make it look better, have better sound quality, or enhance the user experience. However, excessive customization can damage the operating system, and using third-party applications to interfere with the system will also make the problem worse.

Therefore, it is best not to use third-party Windows skin sets, always keep screen brightness moderate, and do not mess with color management, resolution and screen ratio settings. Also, if you're using third-party apps to control these customizations, it's best to give them up.

Furthermore, since Windows allows you to control graphics power usage for all applications, it's best to take advantage of this setting specifically rather than keeping it high. As follows

Step 1: Open Settings and access System > Display 

Windows setting
Step 2: Click Graphics settings and select Desktop App or Microsoft Store App. As noted above, you can choose to allow Windows to prioritize graphics power for apps from the Store or desktop software in a very specific way.

Step 3: Click Add and select the application and software you want to prioritize graphics

Similarly, turn off all apps, customize support for unnecessary audio enhancements and keep the audio speed low or default unless you want to enjoy the beat of the song from your ears. listen to yourself. Furthermore, you should not use third-party applications to customize your sound to avoid overloading the sound.

 5.Connect unnecessary peripherals

Never leave unwanted peripherals connected to your laptop for long periods of time, which consumes system resources. Furthermore, by using a large power supply, they can quickly drain your laptop battery.

Therefore, you should unplug all such devices when stopping using them on your laptop and keep their usage to a minimum.

The End !
