How to improve Windows XP performance in 6 short steps?

Though the computers of today are strong enough to handle and run Windows XP, with all the visual enhancements enabled, some old computers, or systems with low amount of physical memory and/or a "weak" graphic cards could (and would) run more smoothly with those "cosmetic visual enhancements" disabled.

The default setting is to let Windows choose what's best for your computer, but in 90% of the time, "helping" it a little will surely improve your computer performance!

To disable those visual enhancements, all you have to do is follow the following 6 short steps:
  1. Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties.
  2. Go to Advanced tab.
  3. Click Settings, under Performance section.
  4. Choose Adjust for best performance.
  5. If you would like to keep the "Windows XP Style" (as oppose to "Windows Classic" = Windows 98/Windows 2000 style), you will need to re-tick the 2 last options (Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop and Use visual styles on Windows and buttons). This will keep the nice graphical interface and will preserve Windows XP "fancy look".
  6. Click OK on Performance Options window, then click OK once again, to close System Properties.
  • You can always turn the visual enhancements on by repeating steps 1-4 and choosing Let Windows choose what's best for my computer.
  • To make ALL visual enhancements on, choose Adjust for best appearance instead.
Note: Changes take effect immediately, no reboot required.

Another side-issue regarding visual styles is the wallpaper, or Desktop Background.
Having no background (a solid color. Select None in the background's settings under Desktop tab in Display Properties) will demand less resources from the computer and increase response time when showing the Desktop. On the other hand, having a large-size (both in scale and in file size) photo will need more resources (especially memory) to rescale and view/reload it, every time the Desktop is shown.

How to fix windows xp look that shoud egzist in my sys. anymore,it only can wiew in classic windows mode

You want XP to look like when you first got it and not in classic mode, am I correct? If that is the case, do the following:

  • Right click on your desktop and select Properties
  • Go to Themes tab and select Windows XP and press Enter
That should bring you back your screen. If that did not help, then do the following:

  • Right click on my computer and select Properties
  • Click the Advanced tab
  • Select Visual Effects tab
  • Chose either Adjust for best appearance or you can let Windows decide what's best for your system.
Finally, if that does not work go into Control Panel --> select Administrative Tools --> Services. Look for Themes in Services to make sure that is is both set to Automatic and that the services is started.

Windows XP - Where is

Hi Grumpa43,

None, on some install versions of XP, the Settings has been removed. If there is no Settings, just proceed to Control Panel.

Alternately, you can also go to the Display Properties by doing a right click on any clear area of your desktop and left click on the "Properties"

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
