    Today users give much importance to the graphical appearance and Visual effects, even above the performance.Therefore all operating systems usually apply a number of effects and animations that although they may be "beautiful" have a direct impact on the hardware and performance,allowing in most cases to improve the overall performance of the operating system by modifying or disabling these effects and animations.

    Disable the animations of Windows 10 you do not have to actually improve performance, although they save resources (eg graphics card) and give us a real sense that the whole operating system run more smoothly. You can disable all animations in Windows 10 or only some specific animations,depending on what you want to do.

    The simplest option is to disable all animations in Windows 10. To do this in the control panel have a specific option that will allow us to simply turn them off by pressing a button, without having to choose one by one you want or do not want to disable.

    If you move to the bottom you see an option called "Turn off all unnecessary animations."mark this option and save the changes.You can instantly see how changes are applied and all animations stop working, taking the entire system a "more abruptly" but lighter and sober appearance.

    If you want to maintain some specific animations in the operating system you can turn on and off what you want.To do this, go to the advanced settings of the operating system through System > View Advanced System Settings.


    In the "Advanced" tab under "Performance" click on the "Settings" button similar to the below screenshot.


    From here,in the tab "Visual Effects" you can see all the effects that will have your operating system.You can check or uncheck all you want or do not want to appear to work with your operating system.You can also mark the top choices for Windows choose the effects that best suit your hardware, if you want to apply all the effects for best appearance or if you want to not apply any for better performance (as in the first paragraph of this article).
