windows 10 services to disable to improve performance


All Windows versions load many services at startup. Most of them (not all) are essential to the core system features. By disabling unnecessary services, performance can be can be improved significantly, especially on computers with low system resources.

Here are some of the windows 10 services to disable to improve performance:-

  • Print Spooler (if you don’t use a printer or print-to-PDF)
  • Bluetooth Support (if you don’t use any Bluetooth devices)
  • Remote Registry (this is not usually enabled by default, but if is you can disable it for safety)
  • Remote Desktop (3 services, which you can disable if you don’t use this)
  • TabletInputService ( Enables Touch Keyboard and Handwriting Panel pen and ink functionality)
  • WbioSrvc ( The Windows biometric service gives client applications the ability to capture, compare, manipulate, and store biometric data without gaining direct access to any biometric hardware or samples. The service is hosted in a privileged SVCHOST process.)
  • vmickvpexchange (Provides a mechanism to exchange data between the virtual machine and the operating system running on the physical computer.)

it’s really hectic work for you to choose single services and disable one-by-one. To improve performance of your Windows 10 PC, navigate to http://www.sordum.org and download Easy Service Optimizer tool

After unzipping, run the program. Easy Service Optimizer will detect your operating system, and show the appropriate Windows services list. You now have 4 choices :

  1. Default (your current list of services)
  2. Safe (a no risk selection)
  3. Tweaked (an optimized selection)
  4. Extreme (a high level of optimization)

NOTE:- These lists include only services capable of optimization (not all of them). Adding a new service and changing its startup type can cause your system to become unstable. Please be careful. We do not accept responsibility for any mistakes.

I will recommend you to first click on the “Safe” and click on the “Apply setting to the marked services” first and then check the performance of your Windows 10 PC.
