Microsoft has started rolling out the Insider Preview of Windows 11 to its Microsoft Insider users. Even though it’s a dev-built, the performance has improved over the standard Windows 10. But there are many users whose system isn’t eligible for Windows 11 and have unofficially flashed Windows 11 in their system. Many users who have unofficially installed the Windows 11 operating system on their Laptop/PC are facing some lagging, frame drops, and app crashing issues in the software. If you are using the official ISO build and facing some minor issues, then don’t worry; the upcoming builds will fix the problem. In this post, we’ll discuss how to speed up Windows 11 on your PC for better performance!
5 ways to speed up your Windows 11 PC/ Laptop
Method 1: Performance Power Plan
If you switch to the Performance Plan, the top priority of your software will be better performance. However, you might notice more battery drainage when compared to previous settings. But the performance may increase slightly. To switch to Performance Plan, go to the Start Menu and choose Power Plan. Click on Power Plan and Performance Mode; it will be natively selected to the Balanced Mode. Choose Performance Mode, now click on Change Plan Settings text and Changed Advanced Power Setting. Go to processer power management and set it to 100%. Click on OK and done.
Method 2: Turn Off Visual Effects
Visual Effects add some animations and action over standard UI, which might be helpful for some sets of people and not for others. At least for the low-end systems, this might be an issue. To turn off Visual Effects, go to Start Menu, Search Advanced, and click on View Advanced System Settings. Now go to Settings under the Performance section. Now, you will get multiple checkboxes there. Tick the Adjust for better Windows 11 performance, show thumbnails instead of icons and smooth edges of screen fonts, and click the Apply button.
Method 3: Disable Startup Apps
When you turn on your PC, many apps open automatically and slow down your system. Turning off Startup Apps might help you to speed up your PC somehow. To disable startup apps, go to Settings >> Apps >> Startup >> Close all startup apps. You’re done now. Your system will now boot up faster than before, and the system might feel snappier than before.
Method 4: Turn on Storage Sense
To turn on Storage Sense, Go to Settings >> System >> Storage >> Stronge Sense >> Click on Cleanup of the temporary file and click OK. The Storage Sense will automatically clean the unusual file, slowing down the system. If you are an intense user, you will surely notice some improvements.
Method 5: Turn off notifications
Just like in Android, the constant coming up of notifications takes much RAM and unwantedly slows down your system. To turn off the notifications, Go to settings >> Notifications >> Disable notifications. You can also individually turn on/off the notifications of installed apps.
So, that was it for the post. If you have followed all the steps mentioned correctly, you might see some performance improvements in your Windows 11 operating system.
