Tutorial PC Performance Tips for the month of June

    PC Performance Tip: Increase Your Boot Up Speed

    One of the best ways to improve the performance of your computer is to limit the items that start when your computer boots up. If you have 20+ programs running automatically when your computer starts, not only will it take forever to boot, but it will be slow the entire time you use it. This happens because even if you’re not using these programs, they will run in the background, which still uses your computer’s resources.

    Check out the little icons near your computer’s clock. That’s the system tray. Whatever is in there starts up when your computer starts up — and consequently makes your computer slower. You can improve the performance of your computer pretty easily by doing the following:

    Go to Start > Run.

    Type msconfig and click OK.

    Click the Startup tab.

    Clear all the check boxes.

    Click OK.
    Tip 2:

    BIOS Tip – Start Your PC at a Certain Time Every Day

    Have you ever wanted your computer to be up and running and waiting for you when you get to your desk? In your BIOS setting you will find a section called POWER OPTIONS or POWER MANAGEMENT. In that section of some BIOS, you will find an option called POWER ON BY ALARM. This feature can be used to turn on your computer at a set time every day. For example, if you are someone who arrives in your office every day by 9:00 am, you can set your computer to turn on at 8:55 am using this feature. Just set that time in the POWER ON BY ALARM option. Once set, your computer will start up at that time every day. Your system will be ready and waiting for you when you arrive at your desk.
    Tip 3:

    Shutting Down Windows 8 with One Click

    To shut down a Windows 8 PC, you have to bring up the Charms Menu - click on Settings, click on Power and then select Shut down.

    You can avoid this roundabout process by creating a shortcut for 'Shut down' and pinning it to the taskbar. When you are in desktop mode, right click and from the menu select New shortcut.
