My laptop is only like 6 months old and even when I just got it it took a while for programs to open up. Like I'll turn it on and the boot time isn't bad but when I try to open up a program (like Google Chrome for example) it will take like 1-2 mins for it to load the page. It's so annoying :I But after a few mins of slowness it speeds up and I can open programs quickly. My OS is Windows 10 and my laptop runs on an Intel Core i5 Gen 6 processor. Does this happen to anyone else and if so, would any of you know the reason why? I already tried googling but I don't think I'm asking the right questions or using the right words for it.
Processor: Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.40GHz
Installed Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB (3.86 GB usable)
System Type: 64-bit OS, x64-based processor
Pen and Touch: Touch Support with 10 Touch Points

I'm reading through these comments and it's all just unnecessary bullshit. The problem is you have too many applications starting up with the computer. Not a virus, not a problem with the OS, not a hardware failure, or whatever other bull. Want to speed it up? Right click the bar at the bottom and select task manager. From there select the startup tab and disable everything that isn't a driver, Windows related, or antivirus. If you're not sure take a screenshot and I'll let you know what to keep enabled.
Also do yourself a favor and uninstall anything that you won't be using even if it came with the computer.
Fun fact, Windows 10 keeps the PC on at all times even in full power off, stores some stuff in RAM to help it boot up faster.4

So it's basically the startup programs that you need to disable.
Some people already said this, but go to the Startup tab in the Task Manager and right-click and disable everything you don't need.
After that, hit Windows Key + R. In the Window that opens, type "msconfig" and hit enter. Go to the "Services" tab and at the bottom, check "Hide all Microsoft services". Then uncheck everything you don't need.
And here's a tip: Windows 10 has this feature called Fast Startup. Whenever you restart your computer, don't actually click restart. Instead shut it down and turn it on manually. It starts up faster that way.
And yeah ignore the answers saying that you have a virus or that Windows 10 is causing it.3
