    You can turn off Windows 10 visual effects to speed up your experience, especially on older machines, and in this guide, we'll show you how to do it.
    Although Microsoft has designed Windows 10 to be a snappy OS, there are still countless of tweaks you can apply and things you can do to boost your device performance, such as adding more memory, upgrading to a Solid-State Drive (SSD) storage, and more.
    However, one thing you probably didn't think about doing is to disable those fancy visual effects (e.g., windows and taskbar animations, box and mouse shadows, aero peek) on Windows 10. These visual effects are enabled by default, and they monopolize a part of the system resources causing your device to run slower and can also impact battery life, especially on older machines.
    If you have a computer without very capable hardware that has been upgraded to Windows 10, or you have decent hardware and just want to take full advantage of the system resources, it's possible to adjust the performance options to speed up Windows 10.
    In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the steps to turn off visual effects to improve the performance of your device while freeing up some system resources for other tasks.
