If you’ve ever wanted to enable the ultimate performance power plan in Windows, here’s how. It doesn’t matter which version of Windows you have, this should work on any version of Windows.
The first step is to uninstall all unnecessary applications. You can start with uninstalling Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, MS Access, and Adobe Creative Suite.
What is the ultimate performance power plan?
It is a power plan that will give your computer the maximum amount of performance possible when you’re running it. This may be necessary if your computer is not performing well and you’re looking for ways to improve its performance. It will also reduce the amount of energy consumed by your PC.
The next step is to open up the Control Panel and click on Change plan settings in System Properties.
How to enable the ultimate performance power plan in Windows
Next, you need to install the Microsoft Management Console. This is a tool that will help you with managing and monitoring Windows.
After installing Microsoft Management Console, open it up and search for “power plan.” You’ll see an option called “customize power settings.” Click on that option and select “high performance” from the drop-down list.
Then click on “change advanced power settings,” which is in the next drop-down list. On this screen, scroll down until you see a setting called “optimal performance.” Change this setting to high performance.
You’re done! Now when you boot up your computer, it will be running at its highest possible performance level.
Why you should enable the ultimate performance power plan
With the ultimate performance power plan, your computer will have more RAM and a better CPU than stock. You’ll also see an increase in performance speed.
The ultimate performance power plan is enabled by default. If you want to disable it, go to Start > Control Panel > Power Options. On the left-hand side of the window, click “Change Plan Settings”. Then, uncheck “Turn on the Ultimate Performance Power Plan”.
What happens after enabling the ultimate performance power plan
After you have uninstalled all of these applications, the next step is to restart your computer. After your computer has restarted, go to Control Panel > Power Options and choose High Performance from the drop-down menu. This will enable the ultimate power plan for your computer.
The next step is to check out what programs are hogging resources on your computer and determine which ones you can disable in order to gain more performance. You can also leave some of them running if they’re needed by other programs or if they don’t use too much resources.
You’ll want to look through your task manager, system monitor, and startup manager and start disabling things that may be slowing down your system. For example, disabling antivirus software will help with performance as well as disabling startup items that come up every time you boot up in Windows.
What are some other things I can do with my computer?
You can also uninstall other applications that you aren’t using or want to free up some hard drive space. These apps include Skype, Facebook, Dropbox, and a few other popular programs.
If your computer is really slow and you’re not sure if it’s due to too many applications running at the same time, you’ll need to do a more thorough uninstall of software. To get started, go to Programs and Features in Control Panel. Then click on “Uninstall a Program.” This will bring up a list of all your installed programs with options for uninstalling them individually.
After all the unnecessary items have been taken care of, it’s time to install the power plan we want. The performance power plan makes your computer run faster by reducing task priority and speeding up disk access times so apps load quicker.
