Why Learning How To Disable Non-Essential Windows 10 Visual Effects (2020) Is Important:
The Cost Of Beauty
Microsoft Windows 10 comes pre-loaded with a beautiful user interface. This user interface is known as Windows Aero. If you’ve had the opportunity to use almost any Windows operating system since Windows 98, you know that Windows 10 is probably the most beautiful of its designed operating systems. There were some significant advancements made in the visual representation of the operating system through Windows Vista. Unfortunately, Windows Vista was not well received. The next major user interface update came through Windows 8.
Windows 8, unfortunately, was also not well received. Generally speaking, most people are not comfortable with change. Discomfort with change can work in our favor most of the time. The downside of always fearing change is that we don’t get to take advantage of innovative ideas. Windows 10 was the culmination of two decades of user interface design. It brought together the best of Windows desktop experience melded with the Windows 8 mobile interface. Many computers take full advantage of this dual user experience design.
Are There Advantages To The Windows Interface?
Companies such as Lenovo created a product called Yoga. This product can convert from a laptop computer into a tablet. Switching between the two is as simple as folding the screen back until it’s in contact with the back of the keyboard. Once it’s folded, Windows automatically detects a change and shows you a touch screen interface. At this point, you can interact with Windows as if it’s a tablet. In either case, optimizing the interface generally means disabling beautiful features. Very unfortunate that the majority of optimization tweaks come from disabling things that are aesthetically pleasing to us.
Windows has a robust method by which you can enable or disable visual-effects in their operating system. For most people, the ideal balance is to disable the visual effects you want the least. The more visual effects you disable, the better. You can also optionally use the presets built into Windows. These presets are between the most resource-intensive, or the most beautiful, and the least resource-intensive. The least resource-intensive would be something you would choose if you were working with an older computer running Windows 10.
