When you activate the best performance option, Windows will no longer have animation effects, for example, fade effect when you click the folder, shadow at the window, transparent effect, and much more. The OS still runs perfectly without glamour animation, plus saving more energy for laptop or PC tablet.

I personally choose the Custom option and keep Smooth edges of screen fonts enabled since it was affected the appearance of text. It will make any text on your screen so smooth, not over-crispy and comfortable to read. In case you still depend on several animation effects, consider keeping some options enabled although it may compromising little bit performance.

I also recommend you to disable Windows 10′ fluent design since it has proven to keep GPU consumption at the lower state. Check out the guide to disable fluent design here.

That’s the basic way to speed up your Windows.
