Are there any tasks I can disable to speed up my PC?

Yes, there are a few tasks that you can disable to speed up your PC:

1. Unnecessary startup programs: You can disable any programs that launch automatically when your computer starts up by going to the Task Manager and selecting the “Startup” tab.

2. Unused services: Some services running in the background may not be necessary for your current task. To check which services are running, open the Run dialog box (Windows + R) and type “services.msc” and press Enter. You can go through the list and disable any services you don’t need.

3. Animations & Visual Effects: Animations and visual effects can consume a lot of resources. To turn them off, go to the Control Panel > System and Security > System > Advanced system settings and then click on the Advanced tab. Under the Performance section, click on “Settings” and uncheck all the animation and visual effects options.

4. Windows Search: Disabling the Windows search service helps improve boot time as well as performance when opening programs. To disable it, open the Run dialog box (Windows + R) and type “services.msc” and press Enter. Find the Windows Search service, open its properties and set the Startup type to “Disabled”.
