Here are some suggestions for increasing your computer’s speed and getting it up and running quickly. You may speed up your system by doing the following:
1. You must refresh your computer every time you use an application by right-clicking on the desktop. Refreshing the system cleans out the RAM and improves performance.
2. Use of wallpapers with large file sizes is discouraged. You can slow down RAM performance by using a large file size image as background.
3. Create desktop shortcuts but don’t use them. With a desktop shortcut, you can consume up to 500 bytes of RAM.
4. Empty the Recycle Bin at least once a day. Unless you clear the Recycle Bin, the data you deleted will remain on your hard drive. By hitting Shift + Delete, you can delete files that are likely to be deleted without going to the Recycle Bin.
5. Internet temporary files must be regularly deleted.
6. Defragmenting should be done approximately every 7 days. Defragmenting your hard drive clears space and reorganizes data, allowing your computer to run more quickly.
7. You should have at least two partitions on your computer. You don’t use a Windows disk while running applications like 3DS Max, which requires a large file size; instead, you use the second partition. If you run out of free space on a Windows partition, your computer will slow down.
8. Do not use Tray Icons after running a software application. When you utilize these tray icons, your computer will use more RAM and operate slower.
9. When the computer is turned on, software should not be automatically activated. To do so, go to the Startup Tab, select all of your computer/laptop brand names except the mouse, and click OK (point four).
(Note: If your laptop is a Lenovo, do not uncheck the “Lenovo” box; it is essential to the functionality of your machine.) If you’ve marked and disabled it, you won’t be able to use the Internet or Bluetooth unless you use the Fn + F1 => F9 buttons.)
