Speeding Up Your Slow Computer

Hello. This month’s newsletter will be brief. Following on from last month's newsletter, I have produced the first of this year's article plan, covering slow computers.

The new article is quite extensive, and covers 14 methods for improving your computer's performance, including simple tasks such as frequent reboots (how frequently do you reboot?), deleting temporary and unnecessary files, and removing programs from loading at start up, unnecessarily.

In the image below, for example, you can see that I don't need Steam and Discord loading at start up because I use each application infrequently.

The article takes you through the different options I think best help to maintain your computer's performance. Some are obvious, but may not be undertaken frequently enough, and some are much less obvious, and require further information to be clear. I also add my own unique take on how actions should be undertaken.

Ultimately, your hardware has a finite shelf life. New software requires more resources, data files become larger, and ultimately, hardware replacement becomes your final option. Your mission, is to ensure your device performs as best it can for the duration of its life, which is usually 5-7 years, as wear and tear begins to take its toll.

Please take a look at the article and let me know what you think.
