					Speed Tweaks For XP - Get Maximum Windows Performance
We would surely want to get the best out of the operating system that we
have in our own computers. Sometimes, many experience a little slow down
with our Windows operating system. We still haven't fully identified some
of the things that could speed up our Windows XP operating system. All
you need to have are some speed tweaks for XP. Once you are able to know
some of these, you will have your Windows XP work to their full advantage
without even budging a little. This article will offer some of the
hundreds of speed tweaks for XP to give your Windows a little performance
boost at every use.
Having the best out of your Windows XP system is not only about making it
work faster than you want it to be. It is also being able to see the
fonts clearly in your screen so you could input data faster. ClearType is
one of the options provided by Microsoft in their systems in order to
provide the users with a clearer and more improved appearance of text,
especially when they are using LCD flat screen monitors. All you have to
do is to visit the Microsoft Typography services and follow the
instructions that it says. After installing the software provided in the
link, you can now adjust ClearType in your Control Panel.
The Windows Media Player is another tool which we often use in our
computer. Sadly, though, there are times that we haven't fully used the
capability of this program to its best extent. If you are a movie buff
and you would like to watch a flick while enabling the best high quality
video and audio in your media player, then all you have to do is to tweak
your XP to set it in an above normal priority. Just create a new textfile
in your C drive, but give it with a .bat extension. Once that you've
saved it, right click the file and choose Edit. Put this line in the
textfile: start /AboveNormal C:\"Program Files"\"Windows Media
Player"\wmplayer.exe %1 %*. Save the file and close it promptly, making
sure that it has a .bat extension. Next step is to register your media
files to be included in this batchfile. In Windows Explorer, go to Tools,
then choose Folder Options. Go to File Types. Go to the AVI filetype and
click Change. Point to the Above Normal file that you have created and
click OK.
If you want to speed up the performance of your system, then you have to
adjust the graphics. Sure, Windows XP boasts of a lot of state-of-the-art
graphics, but this can sometimes make your system run slower. Go to the
My Computer icon and click Properties. Go to the Advanced tab, and click
the button under Performance, and navigate to the Visual Effects tab.
Select Adjust for Best Performance. This will let your windows assume a
Windows 2000 look, but nevertheless, this will speed up the performance
of your operating system.
