    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
    BE SURE THIS IS THE GOOGLE FOLDER, NOT THE LOCAL FOLDER (Prevents many issues)


    6: Reboot and Enjoy
    ^_^

    Take Care, All!

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