Three simple ways to speed up Windows Startup

Waiting for a Windows PC to startup can be incredibly frustrating when you want to hit the day running. All that time spent staring at the load screen feels wasted, but solving this issue can be easier than you might think. Read on for three options worth considering,

1. Fast startup

It might seem a bit basic, but enabling Fast Startup can help. Open the Windows Control Panel and navigate to the screen marked Power Options. Once here, select the option “Choose What the Power Button Does” and click on the checkbox to Turn on Fast Startup then save your selection.

2. Edit startup programs

Many programs load on startup that you never use, slowing the process. You can edit this list easily by opening Windows Task Manager and clicking the startup tab. On screen, you’ll see every program set to open on startup. Simply remove any programs you don’t require.

3. Update hardware

Finally, improving your hardware can speed up startup. Two options can help; the first is to add more random access memory (RAM) to your device increasing its processing power, while the other is to get a solid-state drive (SSD) for your machine, which offers faster read times than a hard-disk drive and can also be more reliable.

While these options can help, sometimes seeking technical help can be a faster option to speed up your company devices. For a rapid response and strong support, get in touch with our expert team at 127Solutions today.
