Disable Windows 10 Fluent Design to Improve Performance

Disable Fluent Design on Windows 10

On the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Microsoft just added a newly improved interface style dubbed as Fluent Design.

It looks fancy, beautiful, and modern. Yet, it consumes quite significant GPU power. This is probably something to avoid if you still using low-end graphics hardware or battery-powered device.

Luckily, the Fluent Design wasn’t mandatory. You can revert to the ‘good old’ Flat Design easily. Check out the guide below.

1. Right-click on the desktop background and select Personalize.

To disable entire animations, select Adjust for best performance. But please note that the option would decrease the user’s experiences as several animations also play a huge role to help a user interact with some elements.

Therefore, you can choose Custom to pick whatever animations should remain while maintaining the best performance possible. The screenshot above is one reference you could follow.
