Windows 10 is one of the most beautiful operating systems available today. It has a sleek design and has several great animations. This eye candy however does not come cheap as it will use up a considerable amount of system resources. If your computer is having performance issues when the visual effects are enabled then you should try to turn this off. In this latest installment of our troubleshooting series we will show you how to disable animations in Windows 10.

Windows 10 looks good because it has a lot of animations enabled by default. When running on a modern computer this animation makes using the computer smooth and user friendly. On an older computer though with 4GB of RAM or less then the user experience might not be quite good.
