Having performance problems in Windows 11 and feeling that your Windows 11 system is slower than Windows 10?, relax guys, there’s no need to be upset, because this is a normal thing, especially if you were previously a Windows 10 user who switched to Windows 11.
This is because animations and transparency in Windows 11 are more consuming resourcesespecially if you are a user of a device that is not compatible with minimum requirements Windows 11 itself, as I experienced, sometimes opens and closes applications a little there is a fraction of a second delay, although not up to 5 seconds, but it feels quite annoying for me.
Okay, let’s go straight, because I happen to be using Windows 11 now, why don’t we try to optimize this operating system to make it faster.
Make sure Use SSD and Minimum RAM is 4 GB
Although Microsoft requires users to use devices with the latest processors at least Intel Gen 8, quite a lot of users bypass so that their devices can run Windows 11.
This is certainly not a problem, because generally with Intel Gen 4, Windows 11 can already run well, but the cause of the slow performance of the device is the HDD, make sure you have used an SSD and the minimum RAM in Windows 11 is 4 GB.
Turn Off Unnecessary Startup Programs
After installing many applications, there are usually a number of applications that will run when startups, make sure you only activate the feature only for important applications that you need.
To set the Startup Program, you can go to Settings > Apps > Startup Apps.
As in the picture above, please you set to off on apps you don’t want to run when startup.
Turn off Transparency
Transparency / transparency effect in Windows 11 is really cool, especially after Microsoft updated the component with Mica Effect in Windows 11, making transparency in Windows 11 even better than Fluent Design in Windows 10.
But it’s undeniable because the transparent effect actually makes the device slow, this is because the GPU will work a little more because of this effect, so with that, to improve performance, it’s a good idea to turn off this transparent effect.
The steps, you can enter Settings > Personalization > Colors
Turning off this effect will certainly reduce the experience of using Windows 11, but at the expense of this, the performance of the device will increase slightly.
Turn off Animations
In addition to transparency, there are more animations in Windows 11 if we compare it to Windows 10, for example, switching menus from pages Settings > System to Windows Updates, there will be decorated animation that looks smooth.
Yep, smooth, if you use a device with adequate hardware, but if not, then this animation will actually make Windows 11 feel slower, especially if you previously preferred direct switching without any animation.
To turn off animations in Windows 11, you can go to Settings > Accessibility > Visual Effects.
Next, please set it to Off in the Animations Effect section.
Turn off Restartable Apps
Since the era of Windows 10 1709, Microsoft has introduced the Restartable Apps feature which functions so that applications will automatically open after you restart. Suppose you open Microsoft Edge Chromium and a number of applications such as WhatsApp and others, and when you restart without closing the application, after the restart is complete the application will reopen without changing anything in it.
This feature is certainly very useful, but for those of you who use hardware that is not powerful, this feature will burden the system we use, so it’s a good idea to just turn off this feature.
To turn it off, you can go to Settings > Accounts > Sign-in Options > “Automatically save my restartable apps and restart them when I sign back in“
Well, the four points above are what I recommend for you to do if you want to speed up and optimize the performance of Windows 11.
You can actually turn off a lot of other things too, like setting Visual Effects from Advanced System Properties, removing bloatware brought by Windows 11, and others, but I don’t recommend it because it will remove more User Experience from Windows 11 itself.
