Windows 10 fades and window animations are a feast for the eyes, but waiting for them to load can make your PC a bit slow. If you want an instant response, you can turn off Windows 10 animations for a faster desktop experience.

First, click the Start button, then click the Gear icon on the left side of the Start menu to open the “Windows Settings” menu. You can also press Windows + i to access it.

In “Windows Settings”, click on “Ease of access”.

Scroll down to “Simplify and customize Windows” and deactivate the “Display animations in Windows” option.

When this switch is off, Windows no longer animates windows when you minimize or maximize them, nor does it melt menus or menu items.

If you want to deactivate certain animations and leave others activated, visit the classic Performance option settings. There you can turn off the window to minimize and maximize the animations, but leave the fades on, or vice versa.

Microsoft considers disabling animations to be an “accessibility” feature, but it’s also great for people who want a faster computing experience. This is just one of the many ways you can customize the look of Windows 10.
