Now that you are familiar on how to access some configurations in the Windows environment, we can look at some tweaks to help the performance of your system.
(1) Accessing the System Properties. Usually how I do it is right click “My Computer” from the start menu. Once you know how to do that, right click it and scroll down to “Properties” and click on it.
(1b) Should look similar to this:
(2) In the new window, you should see some basic info about your system. On the left hand side click on “Advanced System Settings”
