What he said. Without knowing your exact system specs and the software that you are running and how you use said software on your equipment, there really is no saying.

Got a model number on that computer?

 

Is it a large desktop or small form factor?

 

Edit: ah its a notebook I see, maybe as information on your motherboard is a bit vague.

i don't see anything out of the ordinary that you could really change other then add more ram.

 

 

Eh may be at its RAM limit

 

8GB is plenty anyhow for most tasks, on that hardware it is not going to be used for anything heavy like gaming or anything and even if it was it is still fine for a laptop (again I cannot find that information the motherboard search i have has a lot of conflicting info thus why i am asking if this is a laptop or not)

Install Windows 7!

 

 

Not really a solution, windows 7 can bog down too.

 

All windows OS's have this issue in some shape.

 

Besides I actually say windows 10 is lighter than windows 7 from  my experience but YMMV of course.

Looking at the stats then yes a RAM upgrade is pointless as 8 Gigs is its Max.

Without doing hardware changes i will do the following:

 

remove any software that loads in the background at start up.

See what apps load in the system tray and see what is what

 

make sure to remove old windows versions in archive

 

this guide here will help

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-delete-the-windows-old-folder-from-windows-10/

 

in fact why top there follow this guide on speeding up windows 10:

 

https://www.cnet.com/how-to/easy-ways-to-speed-up-windows-10/

 

defrag!

 

try other browsers, if on edge go google chrome, if on chrome try opera or vivaldi

 

If all that doesnt help back things up and try a clean reinstall of windows 10.

 

You already have the key registered to your hardware you just need to create a windows install media, a USB thumbdrive will be needed,

 

If all that fails and the machine still runs slow go get a SSD or just replace windows with Linux and see if Linux will perform better.

 

The linux option is always good for certain hardware, linux if you dont know is a alternative OS to windows and can do most of the same tasks you do in windows such as:

 

go to websites

 

listen to music

 

watch movies

 

and pretty much most everyday tasks

 

Even microsoft office office (sort of) works in linux via office online.

 

More than likely you encountered linux already if you use android, android is based on linux as is Chrome OS, Roku devices and a lot of smart devices such as smart TV's have linux at the core.

 

The SSD option is a good one but it will cost you, I would not toy with replacing your hard drive on your own if you dont know computers.

 

A SSD (solid state drive) is a non mechanical hard drive, instead of platters it stores things on chips almost like RAM or old game systems like the SNES
