Open Task Manager by pressing Control + Shift + Escape so you can see what is using your computer's resources.

Without more information it is hard to tell. What model computer is this? How old is it? Is it a laptop or desktop?

also keep up on malware/adware/mining software cleaning.  any of those can really hurt performance.  so use programs like adwcleaner and malwarebytes. both are in the download section.

also running ccleaner once a month cleaning temp stuff out will help (don't use the registry cleaner, it could be dangerous).

If you have a spare USB hard drive somewhere you can use the Ready Boost Feature that Windows supplies.

I find this only really helps with slower systems, you won't see much of difference with a newer faster system.
