3- Speed up the processor
By default, Windows has three modes to determine the frequency of the processor:
- High Performance
- Power Saver
- Sometimes it’s possible to encounter custom options.
It’s better to choose the Balanced or Power Saver option on laptops, but high performance will increase the speed of Windows using more battery power. That’s why it’s best to use this mode on a desktop computer, not on a laptop.
To access these settings just enter the Control Panel and go to the Power Option section and select one of the three options above.
