    curious about two performance differences between Win10 and Win7


    I just upgraded from Win7 to a clean install of Win10. Hardware specs are fairly high performance, using a clean boot with no startup programs for now, systems are identical other than the OS. Here are the two things that I notice that are different.

    On Win10 my programs load a tad bit quicker. What takes a second on Win7 to load takes maybe 0.5 seconds to load on Win10. This is good and I don't really need to understand why but if anyone knows why, go ahead and weigh in.

    On Win10 the keyboard-repeat does not traverse as smoothly as on Win7. I use the fastest repeat rate for the keyboard. Much of my work is in editing text documents and working on spreadsheets. In each case its common for me to hold down an arrow key as the cursor screams across the page. On Win7 this happened super quickly and super smoothly. But on Win10 it stutters just a bit. To see what I mean, open up notepad. Set your keyboard repeat rate on the maximum. Press and hold the A key. You will then see 50 consecutive As in perhaps three seconds. On Win7 this happened perfectly smoothly. On Win10, I get a slight stutter, a brief pause every three quarters of a second or so. Its subtle, most people might not even not notice it. Its not a deal breaker but I would like to figure out why it is happening. If there is an easy way I could run a trace of whats happening in those few seconds on each system I would do it. Thanks.

    :)
