    Disable most of the Visual Effects in System>Advanced Settings>Advanced>Performance>Settings to increase the speed of opening folders and files on Windows.

    zelda noodes are so goode, there is no shame into having them..

    this is a cool shortcut on both windows 7 and linux ubuntu (not sure about others
    press winkey+number to quick open pinned items on the taskbar
    for example winkey+1 opens explorer for me, 2 media player, 3 firefox etc...

    but i like aero and effects :'(

    Malwarebytes is a nifty little tool that any computer user should use. Runs fine alongside most, if not all, A/V products.

    Let's talk broswers shall we?

    If using a High-end PC/Laptop, use Chrome
    If using a Medium-end PC/Laptop, use Firefox
    If using a Low-end PC/Laptop, use latest version of IE or Midori

    well, i don't know if my computer is special, but every time i disable effects and put windows 9x theme, it looks slower and windows movement is not smooth which is bad for my eyes...

    browser depends more on user preference.. no matter slow or high end, firefox for me..

    If using uTorrent (or microTorrent, whatever you call it)
    Choose a torrent that you want to finish and right click and set priority to high. Set the others to low for profit!

    Works fine here
    Warning: Spoilers inside!
    Don't disable all of them, just some of them and find the balance btw the looks and speed. (btw i'm on Windows 8)

    Yes, but I'm talking about the CPU usage. If one has many Chrome extensions, it will greatly decrease lerformance if using an old device since Chrome extensions act and boot up as services at start up

    my dad works for nintendo.
    speaking of torrents i got one tip that it worked for me and my friends and every pc i tried.
    limit your upload speed to 80% or 70% of your total upload speed. this way your bandwith doesn't get all sucked for upload, and your client can propertly communicate with other peers, besides you can also use internet...

    i tested this and works for me...

    when you get on a pesky webpage thats telling you you have malware and your browser is locked and call a phone number, hit ctrl+alt+delete to open task manager. end the process of your browser that takes the least amount of memory.

    make -j x (x=number of cpu cores you have) is really useful when installing large projects from source (ESPECIALLY on a RPi2)
