5 Methods For Boosting Windows 11


Windows 11 is comparatively faster than Windows 10, but it might be even faster. Use these suggestions to help your Windows 11 PC run faster and more smoothly.


Under the hood, Windows 11 does a lot to improve the performance of a PC. Windows 11 will benefit such as improved Windows 10 on the same Machine. Yet, no matter how fast your Windows 11 is, it may be quicker. Even so, keep in mind that PCs tend to slow down with time, and you want to avoid this happening to yours.

5 Methods For Boosting Windows 11

Please keep in mind that this article is about Windows 11 version 22H2. Several things may be slightly different if you have an earlier version of Windows 11.

It is simple to speed up your Windows PC. Simply follow these guidelines:


1. Disable programs that start up automatically.

If programs you rarely or never use are running in the background on your Windows 11 PC, it may be slow. Stopping them from running will make your PC run quicker.


To begin:

  • Open the Task Manager by pressing Ctrl-Shift-Esc.

  • Right-clicking the lower-right corner of your screen.

  • Select Task Manager or type task manager into the Windows 11 search box and press Enter.


Task Manager can be used for a variety of purposes, but we'll only be looking at removing superfluous apps that execute at startup.


click the Startup apps icon on the left side of the screen, (The fourth icon from the top is it.)


It displays a list of the programs and services that run when Windows starts. The list includes the name of each program, as well as its publisher, whether it is set to run on startup, and its "Startup impact," which is how much it slows down Windows 11 when it boots up.


Nevertheless, the screen does not indicate how much each program will affect your performance after launch, during normal PC activities.


To prevent a program or service from starting automatically, right-click it and select Disable.


This does not completely deactivate the program; it simply prevents it from running at startup; you may still execute the application after launch.


You may also return to this section of the Task Manager, right-click the application, and select Activate if you later decide you want it to begin at startup.


Several of the initial applications and services, such as Microsoft OneDrive and Spotify, may be recognizable to you.


The Task Manager can help you learn about new apps. Right-click an object and choose Properties to get more information about it, such as where it is on your hard drive, whether it has a digital signature, and other details such as the version number, file size, and the last time it was modified are included.


You can also select Open file location by right-clicking the item. This launches File Explorer and navigates to the folder containing the file, which may provide additional information on the program's purpose.


Finally, and most importantly, after right-clicking, you may pick Search online. Bing will then start presenting links to websites with information about the application or service. I quickly discovered that bzbui.exe is Backblaze using Task Manager.


If you're concerned about one of the mentioned apps, go to Reason Software's "Should I Block It?" website and search for the file name. Typically, you'll find highly accurate information on the program or service.


Now that you've selected all of the programs you wish to disable at startup, the next time you restart your computer, the system won't automatically launch those useless programs, and your PC may operate faster.


2. Make use of Windows' auto maintenance.


Windows 11 performs background maintenance on your PC, such as security scanning and system diagnostics, to ensure that everything is in working order.


It automatically repairs any faults it discovers, allowing your PC to run at peak performance. If your gadget is plugged in and asleep, the automatic maintenance runs every day at 2:00 a.m.


But, if you shut down your PC at night (rather than putting it in Sleep mode) or haven't had your laptop plugged in for a while, that feature may have been mistakenly turned off, or it may not have run recently. Every day, ensure sure it is turned on and running. You may also do it manually if you’d like.


To launch the Control Panel app, you should do the following:

  • click the search icon on the taskbar.

  • type control into the search box.

  • then select Control Panel from the results.

  • Choose System and Security > Security and Maintenance from the app's menu.

  • If you want it to run now, go to the Maintenance section.

  • select Start Maintenance under Automatic Maintenance.

  • To have it run every day, click Change maintenance settings.

  • then on the next screen, select the time you want maintenance to run and check the box next to it.

  • Enable scheduled maintenance to wake up my pc at the time specified. Then press the OK button.

3. Minimize adware and bloatware

It's possible that what's slowing down your PC isn't Windows 11, but bloatware or adware that consumes CPU and system resources. Adware and bloatware are especially dangerous since they may have been installed by the maker of your machine.


These usually execute automatically at startup without your knowledge. You'll be surprised at how much better your System will perform if you remove it.


Begin by scanning your machine for adware and viruses. You can utilize a security package you already have installed, such as Norton Security or McAfee LiveSafe.


Windows Defender, the built-in anti-malware software in Windows 11, also performs admirably. Simply enter windows defender in the search box, press Enter, and then click. and then click Scan Now. Windows Defender will search for and eliminate any malware it finds.


But you should seek a second opinion, so try using a free tool such as Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. The free version checks for malware and adware and removes what it discovers; the paid version provides continuous protection to prevent infestations from occurring in the first place.


When you've done all of that, look for bloatware and eliminate it. Bulk Crap Remover is a useful free anti-bloatware program.


You can also visit the website Should I Delete It? which provides recommendations on which software is useful and which you should uninstall.


A section of the website is dedicated to removing bloatware from specific manufacturers' PCs. I highly recommend visiting because it lists all of the bloatware that various manufacturers install on their PCs.


Finally, when purchasing a new PC online, see whether there is an option to remove trial applications and software that you do not require to use your PC. This will prevent bloatware from entering your system in the first place.


4. Make use of Efficiency Mode


Task Management has another trick up its sleeve for speeding up Windows 11. The new Efficiency Mode in Windows 11 22H2 helps speed up your PC and extend the life of your laptop battery. Among other things, it lowers the process priority of background apps.


Because you can't turn your entire computer into Efficiency Mode, the title is a bit misleading. Instead, you utilize Task Manager to organize individual apps and processes. There is one catch: You can only use it on certain programs and processes.


To begin, launch Task Manager using one of the techniques described in the preceding tip. If you're already in Task Manager, click Finish.


Click the Processes icon (three squares in a grid) on the left side of the screen to open the Processes panel. A list of programs and processes that are now running shows.


Select the app or process you wish to place into Efficiency Mode, then click the Efficiency mode symbol at the top right of the screen to confirm.


You won't be able to use the Efficiency mode icon if it is greyed out when you click a program or process. Furthermore, some apps, like Microsoft Edge, operate in Efficiency Mode by default, and the feature cannot be disabled.


5. Defragment your hard drive

A bloated hard disc stuffed with files you don't need can cause your PC to slow down. Cleaning it for a few minutes can provide an immediate speed improvement. Storage Sense, a built-in Windows 11 feature, will do the work for you.


Choose Settings > System > Storage, scroll down to the Storage Sense area, and toggle the toggle from Off to On.


Windows will now constantly monitor your System and erase old garbage files you don't need - temporary files, Downloads folder items that haven't been altered in a month, and old Recycle Bin files.


Whether you use iCloud Drive or iCloud Pictures, you may adjust how Storage Sense functions and use it to free up space.


You'll be taken to a customization page if you click the arrow to the right of the Storage Sense toggle. You may create a timetable for Storage Sense here.


You may also instruct Storage Sense to delete files in your Downloads folder based on how long they've been there, and you can choose how long to wait before automatically deleting files in the Recycle Bin.


Finally, you can instruct Storage Sense to erase local iCloud Drive and iCloud Pictures content from your PC after a certain period of inactivity.
