1. Check your device for malware. Malware can slow down your computer and cause other problems after a Windows update.
2. Check your disk space. If you do not have enough free disk space, this may be causing the slowdown.
3. Reduce the number of programs running in the background. Some programs may be running in the background that are taking up system resources.
4. Disable unnecessary startup programs. These programs can run automatically when Windows starts and can significantly slow down your computer.
5. Update device drivers. Outdated or corrupt device drivers can slow down your computer.
6. Change power settings. Some power settings can slow down your computer. Select the “High Performance” option to maximize speed.
7. Run a disk defragmenter. This will help optimize your hard drive and improve overall performance.
8. Backup and reset your PC. If the issue persists, try resetting your computer to factory settings and reinstalling the latest version of Windows.
