Think of Task Manager as a window into your PC’s health. The app gives you insight into what’s taxing the processor, how much memory something is taking up and even how much network data a program has used.
rying to get work done on a computer that keeps slowing to a crawl is annoying and frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Whether your PC is taking forever to boot up or keeps freezing on you, stop living with a slow computer. Instead of running out and paying a technician, or bugging your tech support relative to help fix your computer (we all have one, right?), there are a few things you can try yourself.
Who knows, you may end up fixing your computer and learning a thing or two along the way. Just don’t tell everyone, or you’ll become the tech support relative.
Below, you’ll learn how to troubleshoot your slow PC using Task Manager and how to limit the number of apps that open at startup, and we’ll cover some of the tried-and-true fixes.
