How to Defrag Your Windows Computer
Speed up your computer with the Windows disk defrag tool
Files stored on a hard drive become fragmented over time, meaning that parts of the files are stored in separate areas of the drive instead of right next to each other. When this happens, it can take longer for the OS to open the file. A defrag can fix this.
While there are lots of free, third-party defragmenters, the Windows disk defragmenter can be used right now without having to download anything since it’s built into the operating system.
