Here’s a really, really, simple hack that will make your PC (or Mac) run faster:
“Minimize” any windows you are not using, run them in the background.
Computer operating systems simply take up a lot more memory and CPU resources when windows are open since the graphics have to be constantly updated.
If you are editing videos, using Photoshop, or anything that requires a lot of memory, you can make them run ever so slightly faster by either closing or minimizing any other applications that you don’t need to run.
Simple but this works really well and I have seen people at offices who will leave every window open and get the blue screen of death wondering, “Windows SUCKS!”
It’s true, Windows sucks but you can minimize that simply by minimizing your app windows.
