What can I do to improve my PC’s boot time?

1. Optimize your startup programs: A lot of unnecessary applications, services, and programs can slow down the time it takes for your computer to boot. Consider disabling any apps or services that do not need to start when your computer boots.

2. Defragment your hard drive: Over time, files on your hard drive become fragmented, causing your computer to take longer to access them. Using Windows’ built-in Disk Defragmenter will help your computer access files more quickly.

3. Check for viruses and malware: Malicious software can slow down your system’s performance and increase boot times. Make sure you have an up-to-date anti-virus and anti-malware program running regularly to keep your system clean.

4. Check for driver updates: Outdated drivers can also impede performance and affect boot times. Use a driver updater tool like Snappy Driver Installer to keep your hardware up-to-date.

5. Adjust power settings: Adjusting your computer’s power settings to “High Performance” mode can shorten the time it takes for your computer to boot.
