Boost Windows 11 PC Performance by Disabling Visual Effects

Dec 20, 2022

Windows 11 incorporates animations, shadows, fade, translucent, smooth fonts and other visual effects to make the experience more user-friendly. In the meantime, these require the use of more resources, affecting performance and make the system run slower.

If you need to improve performance and speed up the system to make the experience feel more snappier, you can disable the visual effects. Let’s keep reading on this post to find out how.

MethodⅠ. Disable Animation Effects in Windows Settings

This will not disable all the visual effects on Windows, but only the animation effects.

Step 1. Open Settings

Open Windows Settings by pressing Win+I.

Step 2. Select Visual effects

Choose Accessibility on the left pane, click on Visual effects on the right.

Step 3. Turn on the switch

Turn the toggle switch of Animation effects to Off.

Method Ⅱ. Disable Visual Effects in Control Panel
