  2. Windows 10 slow and freezes

    Hi,

    Corrupted hard drive, too many backgrounds programs, outdated drivers, hardware conflicts, etc. are some of the reasons why a Windows computer is running slow and freezing. To isolate the issue, we'd like to know if you have made any recent changes on your
    device (e.g. installation of a software or program) before the issue started.

    In the meantime, we suggest performing a clean boot. Refer to this thread and follow
    the steps given by SpiritX MS MVP to perform a clean boot.

    Keep us in the loop with the result.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

  4. Windows 10 slow and freezing up

    Slow operation, crashes and freezing since windows 10

    Hi Rakesh,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.


    • What does it freezing? Is Internet Explorer freezing or computer is freezing?

    • As you said that slow operation, what is running slow? Are you not able to open any files/applications?

    • Does your PC hangs?
    I suggest you to check the issue in Safe Mode and see if it’s working slowly.

    To enter Safe Mode in Windows 10:

    • Restart your PC.
    • Press Shift + restart before the Windows logo appears.
    • Click See Advanced Repair Options.
    • Click Troubleshoot.
    • Click Advanced Options.
    • Click Windows Startup Settings.
    • Click Restart.
    • You then see a list where you can choose Safe Mode or
      Safe Mode with Networking (depending on whether you think you’ll need the Internet).
    Once you do get into safe mode, be sure to check all of your drivers for issues. To do that, press
    Windows Key + X and click Device Manager, and from that menu, get Windows to check all of your devices for updates. If driver updates are available, install them.

    If the issue still persists, I suggest to restore the power plans to default.

    To do so:


    • Open Power options
      and go to advanced power settings.

    • Select
      restore power plans defaults
      and then restart the computer and check if it helps.
    Let us know the status of the issue.
