Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
If Windows XP works smoothly on the latest equipment, it can be trolling on an older machine or with economic components. For example Netbooks or nettops are not really swift and have limited disk space. If you start to open multiple applications simultaneously, you will soon experience slowdowns.
You can customize Windows to your material by removing or disabling everything that is unnecessary. You'll save responsiveness. Here are some of the tasks that you need to work on, just go through it:
Limit the Visual Effects:
Many visual effects adorn the Windows interface. You can disable to improve responsiveness. Below is how to do the same:
Click the right mouse button on the My Computer icon located on the Desktop and select the Properties command.
Open the Advanced tab.
Click the Settings button under Performance.
Then select the option Adjust for best performance. All visual effects are disabled.
Note that you can manually activate an effect that is important to you by ticking the box. Then press OK twice.

The interface of Windows XP with all its colors and visual effects is consuming system resources. You can not keep clean and perfectly functional and interface.
Click the right mouse button on an empty space of desktop and choose the Properties command.
