[dba-Tech] Slow Dell

Because my readers will all still be on 10, I hesitate to upgrade to 11.
It's important that they have the same experience I have so they don't get
lost in instructions that they can't follow. 

I'd like to raise another discussion on that count -- is anyone noticing a
lot of differences in Microsoft 365 on a Windows 11 system? Visual is fine
-- screen shots are always different, but if functionality or common use is
improved in some way, I'd need to know.

Hi Susan

Given your troubles, your best option is to perform a clean reinstall of
You can spend hours and hours trying to locate and modify things, but it is
waste of time.
A clean install establishes a firm starting point without all the crapware
that Dell may have included in the factory setup.

Also, consider installing Windows 11. It is very fast - even my old
ThinkStation E32 boots in a few seconds. You may not like the GUI design - I
hate the rounded corners - but I have to face, that this is what clients in
a few years will use.

It only takes a checkmark to move the Start screen to the left.
