Microsoft has added “Quick Start” feature to Windows 10, thus the start speed has been improved a lot. However the more software products you have installed, the more time you will need to boot up.

    1) Right click Toolbar, then choose Task Manager, choose         “services”, tap “Open Services”

Tip Five:
Periodically running the defragmenter

If you do not frequently write or delete files from disk, you could check it every 3 month or longer, and decide whether to clean it according to the result.

If you are using SSD, we do not recommend you to defragment it, because it will reduce the life of SSD.
