Is your computer sluggish? Cluttered? Bursting at the seams? In this course, created for those new to PC maintenance and utilities, author and computer teacher Laura Bungarz shares some of her favorite techniques to help you speed up your home PC. Learn about defragmenting, checking your RAM, sorting files, and using utilities you already have to clean up "behind the scenes." Laura will also provide tips on upgrading your computer and, if your budget permits, looking for a new PC.
Another way to clean up your computer is to remove programs or software that you don't use all the time. Windows comes with a utility that makes this really easy to do. In Window 8 click on settings over here, control panel. Now down here it says programs, then it says uninstall a program. Just click on uninstall a program. What it's going to bring up is a big list of all of the programs that are on your computer, including things like toolbars and Bing and other stuff. What you want to do is you want to remove anything that you don't need, don't want or aren't using.
Very simply, the way you do that is by clicking on something that you don't want and clicking the uninstall button, and it will run through the process of uninstall. You might need to click next a couple of times and click okay, but it will go through the uninstall process for you and get rid of software that you don't need. If you do that with enough pieces of software you'll find eventually you have more space on your computer.
