Improving performance

You can improve the performance of your computer by performing regular maintenance tasks with tools such 

as Disk Defragmenter and Disk Cleanup.

Using Disk Defragmenter

HP recommends using Disk Defragmenter to defragment your hard drive at least once a month.

3.

Follow the on-screen instructions.

For additional information, access the Disk Defragmenter software Help.

and help the computer run more efficiently.
To run Disk Cleanup:

1.

Type disk in the taskbar search box, and then select Free up disk space by deleting unnecessary files

 

or Uninstall apps to free up disk space.
