If your computer is running slow, the following tips can help speed things up. The suggestions are listed in order, so start with the first one, see if it helps, and then proceed to the next one if it doesn't help.
Make sure you have the latest updates for windows and drivers
One of the best ways to get the most out of your PC is to make sure you have the latest version of Windows 10 installed. When you check for updates, your PC will also search for the latest device drivers, which can also help improve your PCs performance. You can also use driver booster Pro To Improve Your PC Performance

Restart Your PC and open Only the Apps you need:
Having many apps, programs, web browsers, and so on open at once can slow down your PC. Having a lot of browser tabs open at once can also slow it down quite a bit. If this is happening, close any apps, browser tabs, etc., that you don't need and see if that helps speed up your PC. If it doesn't seem to help, restart your PC and then open just the apps, programs and browser windows you need.

Use ReadyBoost to help improve performance:
ReadyBoost lets you use a removable drive, like a USB flash drive, to improve your PCs performance without opening your PC and adding more memory (RAM). To use ReadyBoost, youll need a USB flash drive or a memory card that has at least 500 MB free and a high data transfer rate.

Make sure the system is managinig the page file size:
The paging file is an area on your hard disk that Windows uses like memory. There's a setting in Windows 10 that manages the page file size automatically, which can help improve your PCs performance.
To make sure automatic page file management is turned on
In the search box on the taskbar, type advanced system, and then select View advanced system settings, which has Control panel listed underneath it.
In System Properties, select the Advanced tab, then select Settings in the Performance area.
In Performance Options, select the Advanced tab, then select Change in the Virtual memory area.
Make sure the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box is selected. If it is, continue to the next tip. If it's not, select it and then restart your PC by selecting the Start button > Power >Restart.

Click the "Show Additional Plans" drop-down arrow. Enable the "High Performance" option then click "Change Plan Settings."

Step 3

Click the "Change Advanced Power Settings" link in the new window. The Power Options window appears.

Step 4

Click the "+" symbol next to the "Processor Power Management" value, then "Minimum Processor State." Click the "Setting %" label, then change the value in the box field to "100."

Step 2

Right-click the Windows taskbar then click "Start Windows Task Manager."
