So, instead of keeping the data in your system, it is advisable that you store the same on some external storage device; this will help you enhance the speed and performance of your system as there will be less load on your system every time it loads.

#Tip 4: Run the scan disk and disk defragmentation function on your system periodically. This will help you weed out any unnecessary application that might be responsible of utilizing the resources and thus diminishing the overall performance of the system.

#Tip 5: There are many devices that you connect to your system like a pen drive, an external hard drive, mouse and an USB mobile charger. The thing that you need to keep in mind is that when you remove these devices from your system make sure that you have not only unmounted them, but also deactivated them. Also, you need to make sure that they are not functioning when you are disconnecting them from the port. This is done to ensure that these devices do not have a negative impact on your system, especially your motherboard and the ports they are connected to.
