    How can I turn on or off services in Windows 8

    My Windows 8 pc is slow. I was trying to find some solution. In Task Manager I can see too many things are working. I want to disable them. I found that by turning off not required services it will be easier to work on Windows. It will not only boost the performance but it will also reduce the startup time.

    I tried looking for the answer but cannot find it. Windows 8 has lots of changes which are not easy to understand. Any help please?

    Windows surely has too many services which you do not really need. Many of them are working constantly through which your system ram is occupied and you can face a performance issue. But there are some easy ways available through which you can disable these services permanently.

    For that you have to go in control panel > administrative tools > services. Just right click on things which you donít need and disable them.

    It is very important that you must know which services are used for what. Because it will create a problem later on. Your system can perform improperly if these services are not running. Always search on Google of any service you are going to turn off. you can also access the same thing by typing services.msc in the run box. To launch run hold Start + R key and type the entire thing it. Click on ok.

    After doing that also try to free up your startup through msconfig. It will boost your boot time.

    You have to type msconfig in run box. Go in startup and see what all things are configured to launch on start. You have to remove the tick from those things which are not required. Reboot your pc and done.

    Most of the time many applications are configured to work on start and they do not go until you disable them from msconfig.
