In this article, We’ll Optimize Windows 10. this may include de-bloating, startup maintenance, system tweaks, and few privacy settings. It’s Broken Down into 3 stages and can help maintain a healthy Windows 10 system. I’d recommend re-running these steps once in a while.
Many people who use Windows 10 as their daily driver often try to find ways to remove bloatware from Windows 10. Most Windows PCs start slower than they should be, clogged with unnecessary preloaded software. This bloatware isn’t dangerous, but it can slow down your system and take up space on your hard drive.
1) De-bloating And Removing Bloatware Reg Keys.
Right-click on Windows icon and run Powershell as Admin, Then Paste this Command into it.
iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://git.io/debloat')) and run it. You’ll be greeted with this UI

You can whitelist apps that won’t be removed or rather remove all the bloatware.you can even choose whether to enable or disable windows feature apps such as Cortana, Edge, Onedrive.
2) Disable Unwanted Start Up Applications and Services
You may have too many programs starting once you turn your computer on. To rectify this, right-click on the Start button and click on Task Manager. Click the Startup tab (click More details if you do not see the Startup tab) and peruse the list of programs that begin together with your computer. If you see a program that does not get to be there, right-click it and click on Disable.
Further, you can dig deep into services and choose which programs/services can have an automatic startup. But make sure you’re clear about what you are doing and won’t disable any essential services
3) Disable Windows Indexing
As you’ll already know, Windows search results are instant because they’re powered by the Windows Search indexer. Windows 10 uses indexer-powered search like its predecessors although it uses a special algorithm and a special database. It runs as a service that indexes file names, contents, and properties of filing system items and stores them during a special database. there’s a delegated list of indexed locations in Windows, plus Libraries which are always indexed. So, rather than performing a real-time search through files on the filing system, the search performs a question to the interior database, which allows showing results immediately.
Note : You’ll still be able to find your applications through the search bar.
