How Can I Speed Up My Computer

This helps boost speed of your computer – so even your Internet Explorer or web browser you use will works faster.
This will work for Windows XP users mainly.
Step One
First of all I remove all icons from my desktops, including shortcuts, my computer, recycle bin and all icons. They might be removed safely, you are not deleting them. Shortcuts are waste of space. I can still easily access everything. I show you how in a second.
To remove all items from desktop:
You can easy click on the icon one time, then click delete on your keyboard. I deleted my computer and recycle bin that way. They are easy removed from the desktop.
To easily access them if you need:
Click Start, then Click Run.
Type in: C:/
Hit OK. A window opens. Click the icon (there is a folder and an arrow pointing up) Click that another time and you will view My Computer, Recycle bin etc.
Once you get used to it, you find it easy. Memorize a bit the steps, that is all it takes.
Step Two
Now change your XP settings to classic. (this will also remove desktop wallpaper and change colors of your computer to default, which is blue, but it will boost your speed)
Right click on desktop (where there was my computer icon) choose properties. You have a drop down menu. Select Classic Theme then click ok.
Step Three
Now, right click on your start button. Select properties. Then choose Classic Start Menu. Then click Customize.
At the bottom, place a tick mark next to:
Display Run
Enable Dragging And Dropping
Remove the tick mark of all the rest.
Hit OK.
Now click on Taskbar at the top.
Place a tick mark next to:
Keep the taskbar on top of other windows.
Group similar task buttons together.
Untick the rest.
At the bottom place a tick next to:
Hide inactive icons.
Finally hit OK.
Step four
Now click on Start, then Programs. What you don’t need, therefore you don’t use regularly right click on it and choose delete.
I have removed everything apart ones that I couldn’t – the Startup Folder. You can still access those things by going to:
Click Start, then Run
Type in c:/program files
There you can view the programs of your computer. Again you just get used to using the run command and everything is easy. By now you should have seen a tiny improvement.
