MSCONFIG Tutorial In Windows - Speed Up Computer

Windows has all sorts of hidden little utilities that let you configure and modify system settings not normally visible in areas like the Control Panel. One of my favorite tools that has been around since Windows 98 is MSCONFIG. It basically stands for Microsoft System Configuration and is obviously used to configure various settings. In this article, I’ll show you how to access MSCONFIG and how to use it.

1. Open start menu and type msconfig to search for this query. From the list that pops up, we choose System Configuration

2. Go to the Startup tab and select Advanced options.

3. Check the Number of processors box and select the maximum. You don't have all of that as your computer's processing unit, nor are CPU cores: the maximum number represents the number of threads your CPU can run. We'd like to point out, though, in this section, if you don't enable the check box, Windows will specify the maximum amount of processing space available to boot. That being said, if you set a specific amount, you may be limiting overall performance.

4. Next, go to the Services tab and left-click the Manufacturer column to see the services of other installed apps other than Microsoft. The idea is that unnecessary services will be stopped, such as the Google Update service.

5. We do not recommend stopping services, programs, or applications related to drivers or peripherals that you use frequently. For example, printer services (HP, Epson, etc.) and NVIDIA or AMD, are responsible for all functions of our graphics cards. 6. Then we go to the “Windows Start” tab and open the Task Manager. Here, we recommend turning off OneDrive, Teams, and also any other apps that you don't conscientiously use a lot. These applications will slow down the Startup process significantly. To disable a Startup program, simply right-click on it and select disable.
7. When the adjustment is complete, you will see a warning message about restarting your PC for the changes to take effect. You can do it immediately or leave it for later; what is clear is that the next boot will be faster.
