Nothing is worse than getting frustrated cause your computer is dragging its feet. With that said, I present to you three easy tasks that can help you increase your computer speed. Hopefully, this will help you out and save you a lot of frustration in the long run.
Many times, a computer’s performance can suffer greatly from being the victim of outdated software. There is constantly new computer updates that are rolled out which has the ability to better the performance of your computer.

Simply put, this is a method of removing all of the temporary files, the files in your recycle bin, and your internet browsing history. You will find this Accessory on Windows, but other operating systems might have something similar or you can find a program that cleans up your hard drive for you.
The reason that this is so important in the terms of your computer speed is that these files will add up and consume most of your hard drive, making it run overwork itself and end up decreasing the speed of your PC.
