Slow close Win10 to no troubles
We are a busy busy office. Upgrading to Windows 10 was very an exciting prospect for our laptops stuck in Win8 hell. However the potential down time if something went wrong was an ever present fear.
We didn't jump right in on day one, two or even three we waited to hear about some carnage. No carnage so we go for it. The update goes smooth and we have three new versions of Win10 on our laptops. Great lets try it...eekk
Win 10 sooo slow soo painful
Win10 looks so good, but non of us can even use it because it has slowed our laptops to a crawl. We dropping weight, emptying storage and do massive defrag. It is still as slow as hell. We go through and shut down all the garbage services, with no great success.
Turns out Win10 reconfigs your virtual memory to mess with your head.
So first tip to even make Win10 usable.
Click the auto manage option off
Click custom and either enter the recommend amount or an amount larger if you know what your doing. Click set, then ok.
Now Win10 is probably usable. Next problem, where the hell is the Wifi network!
Turns out a lot of Hardware is not compatible with Win10 with its current drives. This was the case with our WiFi the fix wasn't to hard, but then on information on how to do it wasn't around, which is why I thought I write this quick fix.
Back to control panel in Win10.
A restart is suggested between driver selection, though I found after selecting the right driver the Wifi available panel started showing available wifi networks.
Good luck! We don't really do networking and PC repair anymore, though if you are a currently client we are happy to help.
