    How to speed up Windows 10 while using Chrome Browser

    Hey! I'm new here, and may be needing help soon-- so I'd like to share a remedy I use regularly.
    When Google Chrome is slowing down windows 10, it is fixable.

    Check your Task Manager > Performance and check out the disk graph: it shouldn't peak above the charts

    Opening a few pages
    Should look like this (after this process)

    To save the fate of your windows machine just follow these simple steps

    1: go to My Computer>C:/>Users>YOU
    ensure that you can see hidden files:

    2: Then go to AppData>Local>Google

    3: Right click and go to properties:
    Under general click [Advanced]
    and Disable "allow files in thie folder to have contents indexed..."

    4: Next edit Security Permissions

    5: Deny Full Control to SYSTEM

    6: Reboot and Enjoy

    Take Care, All!

    Are you sure this doesn't screw up Chrome operation & protection?

Following upgrade to W10 the font size of "Other Bookmarks" has reduced in size. Normal browser sizes are fine, just the Bookmark too small. Any way to increase those without increasing everything else? Thanks.
