Many Windows 10 complain that their Start menu is laggy and slow. It opens slowly and sometimes it doesn't open at all. In this article, I would like to offer you a simple solution to speed up the Start menu in Windows 10.
The main idea behind the trick is to disable unnecessary animations. When animations are disabled, the Start menu in Windows 10 opens instantly and the right click menu and jumplists also appear instantly.
So, to speed up the Start menu in Windows 10, you need to do the following:
- Open the Settings app.
- Go to Ease of Access -> Other options.
- On the right, turn off the option "Play animations in Windows":
That's it. This will significantly speed up your Start menu in Windows 10. Not only the Start menu but the whole Windows 10 user interface will become more responsive.
