Three questions to consider for improved PC performance

Whether you’ve got deadlines to meet or a rapid-fire workload, nothing is more infuriating than a slow machine. Expert technical help can often get your device back on track fast, but first, here are some tried and tested tactics you can try to speed up your PC. Ask yourself the following questions to get started:

1. Are you running the latest version of your operating system?

Among the best ways to maximise your PC capabilities is to ensure you’re bang up to date with your operating system (OS).

If you’re using Windows, go to Start, Settings, Update & Security, Windows Update, and then ‘Check for updates’. Your PC will search for the most updated edition available, along with the most current device drivers to enhance your PC’s performance levels.

2. Do you really need all those applications open?

Having multiple apps, web browsers and programs open all at once can slow down your machine. Opening many browser tabs simultaneously can add to this issue.

Try restarting your device and then open only the browser windows, apps and programs you require for your current task, and see if you PC starts to work faster.

3. Are you low on storage space?

Finally, low disk space can also reduce operating speed, so check your storage and delete any temporary or unnecessary files.
