In this segment, we are going to discuss “Windows 10 optimization to reduce CPU and Disk usage in 2020“
The first step you need to follow for any operating system is to set on the latest updates.
Once the operating system is up to date then we can go ahead and disable windows 10 updates. As we all know that we can’t able to disable windows 10 updates from the operating system itself.
The windows updates are the most important culprit that keeps on running in the background. First, we need to update the system to the latest updates and then we need to disable all the updates.
So, we will go ahead and use a third-party tool to disable updates i.e free and easy to use software that can easily disable windows 10 updates.

- Open This PC right-click on your C: Drive then click on properties. After that, we need to uncheck:
“Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed in addition to file properties“.
- Once the option is unchecked we need to click on apply and then leave the second option checked i.e.
“Apply changes to drive C:\, subfolders and files“.

All the above steps will significantly improve your system performance but you need to run all these steps again after 6 months. Because whenever Microsoft pushes a major update to windows all these changes will revert to default settings.
