What’s going on guy, welcome back to another brand new video and Today we gonna be show how to speed up Your windows 8.1 for free and without
using any software. This video is also applicable to your windows 8 PCs. So let’s start speed

your pc performance by allowing more energy to your pc, Just go to the start screen and
search power option. Now you will see the power options here, just click on it. Then
you will get to the power option window, just like this! and here you can see, My default power plan is
set as Balanced by default. You can just change it to high performance. To get the maximum
performance. Now you can close your power option. Step number 2, Disable Unwanted Startup Programs.
For that first you need to go to the task manager. Just go to your start screen and
click on this windows icon, now you will see this menu and from here you gonna wanna choose task
manager. Once you are at the task manager. Go to startup tab and here you will see all
the programs that start automatically when your system start. When you install a program
in Windows, it may add a small program that runs when Windows starts. After installing
a lot of software, you may experience your boot up process could become slow and this
programs run on the system background for ever and it cause your system performance
slowdown. If there are programs you don’t use much, they probably don’t need to start
every time Windows does. So I will show you how to disable unwander startup program to
achieve a better startup speed & System performance and you can see many of the programs that
we regularly use as well as many programs that we never use on a daily basis, identify
them and apply this, for example if you are not an active Skype user you can disable Skype
from automatically start once your system startup and let me disable number of other
programs as well, that i ain’t use regularly and make sure do not disable your programs
published by Microsoft, because maybe these programs running your windows,
and do not disable your antivirus too. That’s it we all done here. Now close the task manger
and let’s move on to some other things. Step number 3 Defragment and Optimize Drives,
to do that you gonna wanna again go to the start screen and search defragment and click
on the defragment and optimize drives. Now you will see this window, from here you gonna
wanna select your system drive. Usually it is the c drive, so let’s select “c”
and click on Optimize. Now you can see your System drive is optimizing. Once it finished
you can close this windows. Step number 4 Delete unnecessary temporary files, for that
head over to the start screen and run then click on run. Now type %temp% on the run box
and click on ok. Now you will see this folder. Select everything in it and delete. Now close
the folder, go to run box again and type temp and click on ok. Now again a folder will appear,
and here you will see a warning massage just like this. Click on continue, then select
all the files in it, and right click and delete. Now again go to run and this time let’s
Type prefetch, Now you can click on ok. You will find all these commands that i mentioned
on this video will be on the video description below So you can just go there, copy and use
them after you finished watching this video, as well. Now click on continue and you gonna
wanna select everything and delete after that you can Close the folder. Step number 5 Clean
Up memory go to your file explorer and right click on Your system drive or c drive or more
specifically saying, where your windows 8.1 is installed and choose properties form here,
we are now on the general tab. here you will see the disk cleanup option. Just click on
it! and allow it to scan the files, Now you can see the Scanning is finished and you gonna
wanna click on the clean up system files, then it will scan again, after the scan finished
you will see this window and click on ok, And it will ask you “Are you sure you want
to permanently delete these files”, just click on delete files Don’t worry It will only
delete the unnecessary files and what this is doing right now is cleaning all the unnecessary
files in your system. Now the cleaning process has been done. Step number 6 Reduce run time
service, for that first we wanna open the run by going to start screen, search run,
and click on run. Now you wanna type in msconfig, then Click on ok, and you will see this, and
from here go to service. Now you tick on this option, “Hide all Microsoft services”
,That’s really important, I don’t want you to delete any Important things accidently.
So make sure you tick this option. Now click on ok. Step Number 7 Registry tweaks. Now
I will show you how to do some registry tweaks to speed up your windows 8.1, for that the first thing
you gonna wanna do is launch the run box again, for that head over to the start screen, and
search run. Now click on the run and launch it! Now you can type, regedit and click on

experience all this change you should wanna restart your system. Let’s do it a little
bit later, because i have to show one more things to speed up your windows 8.1, Stay
tune. Step number 8 Visual effects. In this step we are gonna show you how to disable
your, windows 8.1 interface graphical performance, to boost your system performance. and please
note, it won’t effect your gaming or program graphics, It will only reduce the graphics
performance of your windows 8.1 interface, for example after you do this you may feel
lose in visual effects of your windows 8.1. But it will improve your system performance
to the maximum level. So the final decision is up to you. Whatever it is, for the sake
of the video. I will show you how to do it, try it on if you want, if you feel disappointing

button. And you will get to this performance options window, these setting is basically,
everything that make your windows 8.1 looks beautiful, as well as these are the main things
that uses your computer resource, like your Ram, processing power, and graphics as well.
I will only recommend this, if you want the extreme performance that possible with your machine.
So let’s do it, click on Adjust for best performance option and you can see, now it
will unticks all these settings automatically, if you want you can tick some of the options
that you can’t live without, for example, in my case, I would like to tick this option.
