Faster Windows

Windows runs much faster with solid-state hard drives (SSDs) which are getting more and more common in laptops these days than the old mechanical hard drives.

Windows also runs better without built-in hibernation, which can be a big bother.

If  Windows hibernation is bothering you, such as slowing you down, or interfering with shared printing, the fix is easy.

Type Windows key + X, select Windows Powershell (Admin), and answer “yes”.   

Then, type powerconfig -h off and press enter.

That is all there is to it.

For the particulars, if interested, tap or click for the tech details.

The same site has a  nice video which shows how to replace your old fragile hard drive with an up-to-date SSD.   A cheap upgrade.
