Today, we’ll be showing you a concise guide on how to speed up PC for blogging.
Blogging, unlike web development and gaming, does not require highly sophisticated system set. However, having your PC running at optimum capacity would make your work more convenient, as you’d be able to create and publish contents faster.
To achieve this, you can try some of the methods in the next section.
How to Speed Up PC for Blogging
Here are some tips for you:
Upgrade Microsoft Office
For a Blogger, you’re probably familiar with Microsoft Office, particularly Microsoft Word, which is the primary tool employed for content creation; the forte of Blogging. And while the suite has evolved overtime, many users are still stuck on the old editions (2007/2003/2002/2000 and older).
Hence, to improve your performance, as a blogger, it is recommended you upgrade to a newer version of the suite, preferably Office 2019, 2016, or 2013. These new versions offer better features, which generally make your work faster and easier.
Most publishing platforms like Blogger, WordPress and Amazon Kindle among others require standard – updated – web browsers. Hence, if you are running an out-of-date or unsupported browser, you may have problems.
For your convenience, below is an outline of recommended browsers for publishing on PC:
- Firefox: v24 & above
- Internet Explorer: v10 & above
- Chrome: v32 & above
An overloaded RAM will slow down all system activities; hence, ensure there is enough breathing space on your RAM, at all times. To achieve this, it is important to maintain as fewer running apps/processes as possible, while writing or publishing.
Simply remove nonessential processes/running apps in “Task Manager”, and leave only the essential ones (MS Word and/or publishing browser). In some cases, you may have to remove/uninstall some apps.
By decongesting RAM, you are able to protect your PC from unnecessary lags, which could hamper your writing/publishing workflow.
Clean Up Disk Space
This method, like the previous one, is not specific to blogging, but rather applicable to improve the overall running speed and performance of your PC.
In the event that your storage space is clustered (filled with heavy junk apps/files), you can delete some apps and files to free up space.
With this procedure, your PC would run faster, and your blogging workflow is consequently expedited.
This is also essential to speed up PC for blogging, as you are able to do more in less time with an up-to-date PC.
To update your PC manually (on Windows 10), follow the steps below:
- Open Start menu: click on the ‘Windows’ icon at the top edge or bottom edge of your screen.
- In the menu, click on Settings > Update & Security.
- Select Windows Update > Check for updates.
- Install available updates and follow the prompt commands to finish the installation.
In conclusion, you should be able to speed up your Windows PC by applying any of the solutions we mentioned above. Besides, any of the aforementioned solutions will boost your PC for long-lasting performance in the long run.
